  • I noticed that, at the entry for incisiveness,
    -- https://www.wordnik.com/words/incisiveness --
    the second definition contains a TYPO! -- it says "forcefulnelss".

    IMHO it should end with "ness", instead of "nelss". (right?)

    Is there a correct place to submit such a squawk? (a TYPO report)? How about here? :-) !
