Surprised they missed FALSITIES when FALSIES and FALSEST had been mentioned.

Less surprised that they missed ACETOGEN in R13
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

Perhaps they missed it because it shouldn't be valid, FALSITY is a mass noun: https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/falsity

TBF I only blagged a 6 out of the falsies/falsest round, but it was a good game to watch with some strong play. Can't help but feel sorry for Rania though, must be hard to lose by 1 point and played very well in the letters, but the numbers were her weak spot today.

Yeah in your camp here - it's very dubious and I'm not sure it'd be allowed.

Interesting. One of the example sentences makes it sound very much like a count noun though.
I can't deal with every falsity in just one column, so I'll deal with the different parts of his speech over the course of several weeks.

For now I've left FALSITIES in the recap, but if it's officially culled from Lexplorer I'll take it out.
There are three erors in this semtence.
