  1. The word “Arborial” as well as “Arboreal” is sometimes accepted. “Adlib” is considered legitimate. “Labral” is also legitimate. None of those three were allowed. Some of YOUR words are “off the wall” and severely opaque – “Baba”? Really? Is this left over from The Lucille Ball show when her husband would say “Babaloo”? There is a word Babka, but I never heard the word Baba. “Airball”? I know “Hairball”. “Larboard”? “Lobo”? That sounds like a name from a third rate Western. Is a “Railbird” like a “Jailbird”? “Barroll” makes more sense than “Rollbar”. I LOVE doing Spelling Bee. Have never missed “Amazing” and have reached “Genius” a couple of times. However, today left me EXHAUSTED searching for enough words to reach “Genius”. I had 43/171 when I threw in the towel. Then, when I looked up your answers, I….. If a word has no known definition then it should NOT be included!
