Some New Bingo Lingo

On Monday Cathy played *toering* against me. The only word from that combination is GENITOR (a male parent). I did challenge, but not as confidently as I would have the previous week because it seemed a very reasonable word that could easily be an addition under CSW19. Fortunately for me the lexicographers must think that it should be toe-ring with a hyphen or perhaps two separate words, so GENITOR is still the only solution for those letters. However it did seem a good idea to look at the most likely 7 letter words that are available in CSW19 that were not legal words in the old dictionary.

This turned out to be a big topic so don’t be discouraged if there seems to be more words than you can remember at one go. Perhaps you should read this blog in two or three stages.

We will start with the bingos for which the old dictionary already had a word for that letter combination.

ABIETES (1) Plural of ABIES which is a type of fir tree

WORDIES (3) Lovers of words

The number in brackets is the number of words that were already available. For example TRADIES is such a great group of letters that there were already 9 words that you could play.

The next list of 7 letter words are all combinations for which you would NOT have previously been able to play a bingo.

You mind is probably spinning about now, as though you were looking at that VEDUTA from too high an altitude. You might be thinking that it is just as well there was no quiz this time. However there is a surprise quiz at the end, but it is a little bit different. I have already given you the answers, because all of the answers are the words that you read in the first list at the top of the page
