Valid words not accepted

Other PeopleFun games (I.e. Word Chums) allow words that WordScape rejects. Valid words are valid words, no?

    What makes not accepting valid words more painful is when you include in puzzles words that are not in the dictionary. Example: Level 2550 has the word “Blam.” That’s not a word! You also accept shortened versions of some words, but not others, e.g. “ammo” but not “mic.” I’ve had many valid words excluded: ester, wale, creel, etc. I support excluding profane or vulgar words. All others should be accepted and granted points.

    Level 516 “garner” was not accepted as a valid word either

    Level 501 “saccade” was not accepted as a valid word!

    I totally agree with previous comments and to respond to Kenny in customer support: No, we're not just talking about bonus words. I try vaild words on a daily basis that aren't accepted, e.g. lee, like the lee side of a boat, teal but not aqua - really? Updating your database based on the Scrabble standard seems like a great idea.

    Hi. On Level 507, the letters are JUNKIE, I entered the word JUNE and it was rejected. Just curious why that might be. It is the first time I have experienced this after over 500 games.

    I look up many words that are not accepted. Then l see if it is a valid Scrabble word and it is ! Scrabble set the standard for word games!

    Duh people. They've restricted bonus words because they want you to BUY the coins. They shouldn't do it, but they do.

    Also Velcro is a proper noun.

    I wish you would use a better dictionary. I have input many valid words that should have been accepted as bonus words but are rejected. I don't know what dictionary the game Alphabetty uses but it has everything.

    Negro is a word. To not allow it is to try to erase an entire race and it’s culture.

    mars doesn’t even have to be a place name. It could be a verb, as in ‘to mar’ something. So it surprises me that this one is rejected as a proper noun.

    Just now I had Cuba and Mars rejected. Someone commented earlier that they had Asia rejected... got some problem with place names?

    Really disappointing that valid words are not accepted. I have been unlearning all my correct spelling learning because there is no English version available and now my subconscious is doubting it's spelling ability. Shame
