I'm not sure, but paleon does not seem a valid word. It is an abbreviation of paleontology. In fact on Dic.com appears with a grammatical point at the end: paleon.

This is what Webster Dictionary says about this word: Paleon not found in the Dictionary
(http://www.webster-dictionary.org/definition/Paleon)

- I know we are ruled by Dic.com, I was just checking with Webster... -

Yes, looking at it again, I am sure you are right, Tony.

I can't find any other word, so    :surrender:

I have a new idea: maybe the winner of a game should have the chance to find a word which follows their own winning word, therefore possibly allowing the game to continue further. If they can succeed to find a word where others failed, then they can aim for the special recognition of "Word Master", if they can win the same game twice!

What do you think? Maybe we could try it with this new game. Who will be the first Word Master?  :clapping:

Well, I got the idea in my last post because I think sometimes the winner can see another word that the others don't see. Anyway, let's see if it works.

Yes, there are more than one word that can follow pleon.

Here is one:

Wow, Tony, congratulations!! You are now eligible to try for the title of "Word Master"!!  :clapping: :clapping: :clapping:

To be awarded the title, just win the continuation of the game, meaning you will have won this game twice.

If you achieve the title, you can hold it until someone else claims it by doing the same thing.

Agreed? Since the Judge has gone AWOL, we need to decide these things ourselves     :thinking:

Oh! I was kind of hoping you would go on to become the first Word Master! I hope you will try again at the next opportunity.

OK, so the new word is:

procity


I have doubts about the validity of this word, but Dic.com does not say that it does not exist, only change it to city, doing the same with pro city and pro-city. We have already noticed these changes with other words on Dic.com, so I think the word is valid unless the dictionary says the contrary.  ;)

I didn't have time to study your word until this morning. I was bringing the boat back to the harbour - going home tomorrow after 6 weeks here  :'(

I don't think procity is a legitimate word, Tony. When typing it into dicdotcom, only city comes up. Then procity is not mentioned in any of the related forms, such as intercity, minicity etc. The other forms you mentioned, pro city, and pro-city, also only come up as city. There is no definition of procity, and I have no idea what it means.

As another reference, I checked Oxford Dictionary. When entering procity, it says "No exact match for procity found in British and World English"

So my conclusion is that it is not legitimate.

Got another word?

I think procity it is a valid word, according to our rules. In fact, it is given for dic.com as a suggested word:



I think that, in this case, we will need an impartial trial, therefore, we'd better declare a temporary tie and you continue  with a new word. Is it OK for you?   ;)

I think I have to give you that word as valid, Tony. When I entered the same example as you: "prosity", it does come up with the suggestion "procity". In addition, when clicking on that link, you get the definition of "city". Scrolling down that "city" page, it shows "procity" as an adjective.

I still have no idea of its meaning, but I accept it is a valid word by dicdotcom.

You win that one Tony.  :surrender:

Hey Rick, please don't misunderstand me, remember my poor English.
I don't want to win, I don't need that; my comments were only because, after reading the evidences, I just thought that the word procity was valid.

It is still your turn with a new word.    ;)

Tony, I didn't give you any special favours. I came to the conclusion that procity is a valid word. Dicdotcom definitely lists it as an adjective of city. I just don't know what it means.

So, since that is a valid word, which I cannot find a following word, then you win.

But one thing I do agree, you don't need to win!!  rofl

Over to you.

flavours


I have understood that the plural of a word could not be used. It is obvious that this case is not flavor - flavors, but for me remains a plural, even if it comes from flavory.
I thought you could not use it.

You forgot the rule Tony. The rule is that you can't make a plural by simply adding an s to a word.

But flavors is not the plural of flavory, which is an adjective, so cannot have a plural. So it is OK. That's how we have been doing it for years.

favours

It seems we are stuck on this word and its variations. Can you get us out of it? You are the expert!  :yes:
