Valid words not accepted
Why are many valid words such as Bate
Peso (is disallowed but siesta is OK)
Roman (ok, Dane not allowed)
Abled (as in, differently abled)
oops previous post was not correct the word is gees.
Someone posted fees is only slang for Jesus. Sorry, but gee means left and haw means right when giving a harnessed draft animal. Sled dogs, skijoring dogs, horses, oxen...are controlled with gees and haws.
Garner is not accepted

Isn't GAGE a word ? Also the game accepts ITS as a word but it is 2 words it is a abbreviation for IT IS

Repeatedly find that legitimate words are not accepted. Eg rota. Current game won’t accept buys - each time I type it it says bonus word already found but it’s the bonus word I need to complete this level.
The word "duff" is not accepted, but if you enter "duffs", it is accepted, and the dictionary entry refers to "duff" (!?!).

I've noticed most levels will accept a word and others won't accept the same exact word even as a bonus word. Really annoying!

ovine is a valid word as well as lot's of others too many too remember not accepted on this game
So far a list of more than 70 valid words not accepted. Same words get used over and over and over on the game. My list is nothing terribly exotic, common in crosswords. Willing to share....
