I doubt this will be as popular as the corresponding Swedish thread, but here we go.

*HAR (as in "HAR, HAR!", a sarcastic laugh)
*CLIT
*ALGORIST (ALGORISM is good!)

I propose retaining BRR and BRRR and adding BRRRR. Anybody that disagrees should visit Sweden in the winter.

So when playing my phone I was happy to find *VACeTI(OU)S. Like in the Neotropic song 'Vacetious Blooms'. But it turns out that it is not a real word. She is a clearly a devious, devious woman to just make up a plausibly sounding word like that.

Also, CAVY, CAVIER, but *CAVIEST. It may be that CAVY is not what it seems to be, but then I don't know what CAVIER would mean.

VACuIST which I didn't know is good, and of course ACTIVeS which was unplayable, (OU)TCAVIlS and VITACe(OU)S would also have been possible. Perhaps 'vacetious' is a play on 'facetious' and 'vitaceous' (belonging to a type of climbing plants).

CAVY = Guinea pig, capybara etc
CAVIER = CAVIAR

I've always found the -ER and -IER words tricky to deal with, I spotted CANT(ER)ING at the WC but chickened out as I thought that CANTER was a noun. It's a verb, and I lost the game - bummar.

I chickened out of UNSAINT in a recent tournament in Kuala Lumpur,

because I was too embarrassed to play such a ridiculous word in case it was a hallucination.
