Please let me know if I missed your name in the cross-tables.com lists,
and sorry about that.


Erratum: Steven found a typo in last week's news. IODIOID was listed
    as a bingo with 3 Is, and it should have said OIDIOID.

Last week's news presented the most likely sevens with three Is.
Here are the NWL2018 18 most likely eights with three Is:
  INITIATE, INITIALS, INVIRILE, IDIOCIES, IRITISES, LIAISING,
  DIMITIES, DIVINISE, NIDIFIES, IGNITION, RETIARII, DIGITISE,
  SIGNIORI, BIRIANIS, ISATINIC, VIRIDIAN, DIORITIC, IODISING

These are the same kinds of words in the same probability range
which are from the CSW2019 lexicon only:
  VIRIDITE, ANIRIDIC, TIRRIVIE, TIGRIDIA, RIGIDISE
