So, steve, then you probably have more than I do in some of those areas. Care to share? ;)
i have 23 A's and 22 E's, so they must be close to right.
OK, I was joking about them being wrong. shortseer hasn't lead us wrong yet on the counts, it was just an exasperated whine that this grid is hard.
So, any help from anyone?
Hang tight. I'll psot my A's breakdown shortly
A's= 2 ai, 7 an, 6 ar, 1 as, 1 au, 1 ay
e= 3 ea, 1 ed, 3 ee, 6 er, 2 et, 4 ey
Wow! I'm missing a lot of an words. But that should help me hunt for them. Thanks!
1 x ae
2 x ai
6 x ar
1 x as
2 x au
1 x ay
I'm missing 4 c's
Nope, make that 2 C's
I browsed the A-list at Forthright's Phronistery and found a bunch of words that way.
up to 20 a's and 21 e's
I am missing a ton of S's. I have Sax6, Scx4, Sex4, Shx6, and Six7.
ive got 31 s's right now
saX7, scX4, seX5, shX6 siX9
Up to 26 Es including 10xEY.
thought I had tried the Jane words before hmmm
I'm new at this and have just managed a 7 letter = 52 points, are there any better scores?

I have four 8's so far: a D, an E, an N, and an R which I did not expect to be accepted as a "real" word!
Oh yay! I was missing one R, and one 8.
So that clue solved 2 problems in one go. :)
Of course, i'm still missing lots of other stuff ....
I have not found any more 8's since I posted at 10:26.. anyone have hints about the last two?
Yep. Near the beginning of the log goforit posted the complete stats - number of words of each length and number for each starting letter. Throughout the log are clues to some of the longer ones.
I highly recommend taking 10 minutes to read the log thoroughly and note the clues. There's a lot of good info there!
Q posted earlier that there are 2 8s for 40 points, so in addition to the D,E,N & R that I have, there is one more 40 pointer, and one more unknown 8 letter word.
I only have E8 and S8 any clues for the other 8s please
I'll give clues for the others, if you give a clue for the S8. ;)
D/8/55 - those who condemn openly
E/8/50 - eccentric people
N/8/40 - those who stamp things to make them official
R/8/55 - a particular poison
D 8 - people who oppose
The D and N 8's are both plurals of people.
S/8/40 - to ridicule
ack! British spellings get me every time. Thank you!
theres a S6 for 18 which means Irony you should get the S8 from that, Im not very good at giving clues
the S 8 is to find the humour in things
D8 tenths of a particular unit of measure
D8 those who condemn openly
N8 name of a particulr public officer (plural)
R8 the killing of a particular nasty verminous creature, or the necessary poison
That's all the 8's ;)
Now, who has what 7's ?
Going to bed youngster; hope your evening was exciting. Total for this evening is 112/ 1609.
A starter kit on 7s:
d/40 - die
d/40 - one who condemns openly
d/40 - condemns openly
e/36 - eccentric
e/52 - range of vision
h/40 - more hirsute
h/40 - harasses
h/40 - more gray with age
n/40 - observed
s/40 - contemptuously addressed men
t/28 - lingers
t/28 - more weepy
shortseer, thanks! I can't believe that R one is a real word.
D7 - singular of first D8
D7 - ordains or establishes
D7 - singular of second D8
H7 - harrass or disturb
H7 - ancient looking
S7 - parodying, related to S8
S7 - rugged mountain ranges
S7 - old-fashioned way of addressing a fellow
T7 - delays; makes late
I wonder if your S7 mountain word is the same as my S7 knife word..
there is an s8/40 with an English rather than an american ending
The knife 7 and the mountain 7 are two different words.
Is the mountain one a 7/28?
Krys10 - yes - mountain s7/28
My heads hurting that's me done with only 61 words...boo hoo....

i seem to have given a rather too much of a clue there
Thanks for the H/7/56 shortseer. ;)
I have Cex1, Cix3, Crx6 and Rax8, Rex4, Rix8, Ryx1. Anyone with more care to share?
(and yes, this is an alphabetical listing for those still hunting for more C's)
Wait, how can you have all the S's with my help, when I am still missing 4? I guess the ones I am missing must all be 6's...
I'm still struggling with D7-condemns openly, and S7 parodying, related to S8
No I'm not -wrong S7! Should have been S7 Arranged or occurring in a series or in rows
Stef, Finishing at 102 words 1657 :)
Oh i've been going crasee trying to criate the final C6 word.
