Sorry to Marv the Grate whose word seems only to be recognised by M-W if part of a phrase and also much regret to St Romani who had a repeated word so it is not allowed...

Hi Greebs,

Sorry to split hairs but

"All you have to do is make a word from the letters provided"

and

"Only words found at MERRIAM-WEBSTER ONLINE (UK) site will be deemed acceptable in this game. Sorry for any inconvienance caused, but there has to be limitations to words, and that is where I will go to look up any words unfamiliar to me, or words that I am unsure about. If they are not found in the Merriam-Webster database, then the word will be deemed null and void"

don't seem to disallow 'Deus' - it's a word made from the letters provided and *can* be found at the M-W site. Nothing in the rules seems to preclude a word that is only used in one certain phrase in English. I'm sure that there are plenty of other words in English that may only be used in one phrase or context (I just can't think of any just now...)

You might also want to add 'Greebo's decision is final & no correspondance will be entered into' to save yourself hassle from idiots like me (although I'm not sure how fair it would be to amend/change the rules midway through a round...)

smiley - smiley I'm normally quite a sociable person to be around... smiley - smiley

Hi.. no worries... ~grin~... me doesn't mind a bit of hair splitting as long as the hairs being split are not mine...

Me did think long and hard about Deus... but was not sure if Deus stood up to being a word on its own... or needed other words joined with it to make sense if you know what me means...

M-W seemed to indicate that Deus was not a word used on its own but combined with others in phrases... thus is Deus an english word in its own right... I was not sure... and erred on the side of caution...

I knew if anyone had any problems they would come forward and let me know... which is good and proper... and me will always rethink my decisions if the need arises...

Me has took advantage of the many dictionaries that me has in the Lair... and they all seem to indicate that whilst (example)'dues ex machina' has a meaning in the english language... the single word Dues does not... that is why I failed the word...

If anyone knows different... then please do say...

Greebs..xx
