Bilby, you were right. They served some Belgian chocolate (in seashell shapes!) at the coffee break yesterday afternoon, and the conference ended only two hours later. I'll have to see if it cures other kinds of conferences.
Yarb, I agree that having each word tied to its forms would be useful, but homographs would cause problems. I don't think it could be done consistently without reprogramming the Wordie interface and restructuring the underlying database.
rt: me too. I'd still want to be able to list a particular form of a word. My thinking is that, e.g., the lovely blent would click straight through to blend, or (maybe a better idea) have an embedded link to blend at the top of its page. I do think simple plurals should just be combined, though. And it would be nice to be able to bracket stridulating and have it click through to stridulate.
mollusque: but to me these are just different meanings, to be treated the same way as multiple meanings without distinct spellings. I'd either list the fidgets, or just talk about the fidgets on fidget.
