Sometimes I can pick your next word - I've even guessed correctly on more than one following round on a few words, but not this time. I was thinking you'd go for cooker, looker, or even worker. Back to hoorah wasn't on the list. And you are correct - I don’t mind scrambling letters up.
I know you try to avoid use of certain letters, like the 's', but there are times where use of some letters are, to me at least, appropriate. Like 'er' for worker - that one would work for me although I get why you'd prefer not to use workers.
And just to say it, watch out - even I can’t be wrong all the time.
... but there are times where use of some letters are, to me at least, appropriate. Like 'er' for worker - that one would work for me...
Yeah, worker would work - so would hooker, teacher, writer, runner, etc., because they are in common usage. Words like cooker, looker, sleeper, dasher, and prancer wouldn't because, although they're words, it seems (to me) the 'er' is added just for the purpose of making it fit this particular game - kinda like cheating, somehow. (eye-roll at myself) Stepper, of course, would work, only if capitalized.
Interesting - I was thinking of 'slow cooker' - Dasher and Prancer pulling the sleigh - but like you said, we each play the game differently.
curiae - technically amicus curiae or 'friend of the court' - but is that one 'legal' since we try to restrict words to English. Some words are common even though not strictly English - this is used in court rooms frequently and so you'll hear on TV and in movies once in a while too.
