Update 30 Oct 2020 - Zynga has backed out many of their previous dictionary changes. More info coming soon
A new update to the Words With Friends dictionary has just launched in the game and on our website. There are some interesting changes that may seem like they are for the better and others that may be controversial.
Either way, it will be good to know some of the differences between the new and the old to stay ahead of the game. So here are some of the most notable changes that occurred with the update.
Words Ending in "nesses"
One variation that stood out was the removal of certain words ending with "nesses" like "accessiblenesses," "attractivenesses," "openheartednesses," and "praiseworthinesses." Even though these seem like the plural form of the words like "praiseworthiness," they're technically not valid words. However, there are some words like this that are valid like "playfulnesses" and "attentivenesses."
