in case you're wondering, it was just that one x word. What the heck is a xyst?
+11
Level 75
Mar 15, 2022
I did, though I didn't know what it meant. So I looked it up and it means a garden walk planted with trees in an ancient Roman villa (I'm not making this up). Now I have never heard anyone say I want to walk along the xyst even if they were indeed walking along the xyst, and if it's never used does it cease to be a word? This is an important philosophical question, like does Palestine exist if nobody only 139 countries recognise it? Bad example, how about does Molossia exist if nobody recognises it? Same with xyst. One day dictionarians will delete that word and on that day this will become a 25-answer quiz.

Sounds like one of the words used in vocabulary exams at my school - hard words to stress about, that you’ll never see or hear written or spoken by any sensible person.

Maybe this was the goal all along...

But seriously, generally when there's such an outlier like this it would just be removed from the quiz. But of course, you can't just remove a letter from the alphabet so it must stay :)

Is there a reason why x-ray isn't considered a valid 4 letter word? Is it because of the hyphen? It's been years since I played Scrabble and I don't remember the specific rules about what words count.
+2
Level 68
Mar 14, 2022
Yep hyphenated words and (most) proper nouns (start with a capital generally) don't count. There are some exceptions where proper nouns have other meanings.
+1
Level 62
Mar 25, 2022
Or sometimes when the proper noun has become so synonymous with what it does that it now also functions as a verb (viz. Google). You can’t have a proper verb, after all!

Actually only your first attempt of any quiz is counted towards the stats. However people can still cheat by googling the answers or "giving up" the quiz with 0 (so the take doesn't count) and then retaking. Or reading comments too

Cant (without the ') works but dont (with or without the ') doesn't?

Because "cant" is a word on its own unrelated to "can not". Whereas "dont" is not a word on its own
