Words within words: The word is "endurance." Nare is a word for nostril. It is in your own dictionary. It is made up using only letters from the word "endurance." However, the words within words game does NOT count the word nare as a correct answer. PLEASE correct this error. Thank you.

"Oligo" is not accepted because that form of the word is not an entry in our regular Dictionary. (It redirects to the entry for "oligonucleotide.")

Mercedes is a proper noun for a specific type of car.

However, if I view the following entity under a microscope, then there is no other name for it.

HOGLET

You're missing a valid word. Hoglet is the young of a hedgehog, and is even recognized on the page for "hedgehog". BUT, it isn't recogized as a word with an entry of its own. Hmmm... How can this be?

"Hoglet" is not accepted in Words Within Words because it does not have its own Dictionary entry on TFD. I do not know why "hoglet" currently shows as a link on the entry for "hedgehog," but thank you for letting us know.

That's what I was explaining to you. It SHOULD have a dictionary entry since it is a perfectly good, valid word.
LOL! The name of the game should really be changed to something that reflects the goal is to guess the words in the participating dictionaries.
