endite ?!?!

  • You see, I reckon that many of us who like word based games like Scrabble, believe that it gives us a chance to exercise our vocabulary and increase it ! However there are a few issues – one is that you win as many points with crude obscenities as you do with learned words and secondly the automated versions will offer obscure short words or others that are so rarified they can barely breathe – e.g. endite

an inwardly directed lobe on a limb segment of an arthropod, especially on the protopodite of a crustacean limb.

that’ll come in handy the next time I’m involved in a heavy debate about crab anatomy ……

Any thoughts?
