You think? I don't think anyone has used "goutier" in a non-contrived sentence ever.

Edit - I just Googled it, and as I thought the top matches are just dictionary definitions - the perfect sign of a non-word!

I was relieved Corrina got the conundrum - would have hated the game to have been decided on a disallowed goutier! (which my browser hasn't underlined as a misspelling :) )
