Word Suggestion(s): 2 words
« on: September 20, 2021, 02:09:20 AM »
I was surprised to play some of the 7-by-many puzzles and that "nicen" didn't seem to count. Both are listed in the Wiktionary, which I understand is the dictionary used for this game? The former word may have become accepted since I've posted this, but the latter always gives me the "Sorry, 'nicen' is not a word" message. I've not only heard it in speech for decades, but it's a pretty common verb. The usage I have read and heard express the idea of "nicen(ing) up" something (usually a room or home, but I've also seen it in the context of adjusting a person's behavior.) "Nicen up" is actually listed in the Wiktionary as the term "nicen" is derived from. Can this word be added?

Also, I cannot seem to get "pappa" accepted, despite it also being considered a noun that is a synonym for "dad, papa," etc. "Mamma" is accepted (as is Mama, if it's not the 7-by-many, so 4 letters are accepted), but I cannot seem to get "pappa" accepted. These are both common variations of the same words that simply are spelled without the double consonants in the middle.

Hi KatKall

Chi uses many dictionaries and word sources, not just Wiktionary. Its occasional quirkiness is part of the challenge!
