6. achinosalata is probably a Greek seafood dish. Exotic.
It is a fairly exotic Greek seafood dish (half a point awarded). I'll give the full answer as it seems to have stumped people. It's sea urchin salad.

The points as I count them then are;

pdurrant: 4
Kumabjorn: 3
orlok: 2
Fbone: 1.5
issybird: 1

Over to the Grand Mouse!

Goodness me.

Ok, here's a puzzle that stumped me. The following words all have something in common.

Dresser
Grammar
Potato
Revive
Uneven
Assess

Can you find the connection, and any more words that would be a member of the list?

Two points for the connection, and one point each for more words that fit! A chance for anyone to win, as I'll let the competition run for a full day after someone's found the connection!

They all have palindromic sequences in them after the initial letter?

Close enough, as it's tricky to describe. Apart from the first letter, they are palindromes. If you move the first letter to the end, the new sequence is the old one backwards.

2 points to orlok. Can anyone find some more?

Harder than I thought. My list includes more than a few foreign words we have adopted into English common parlance, so may not count?

Data
Kata
Presser
Here
Mere
Were
Belle
Penne
Motto
Sotto
Mete
Mono

Wow. orlok is doing well. If I'd thought of it, I would have restricted the list to six letters or more.

But I will restrict it to four letters or more, and apply a sliding scale of points:
four: 1 point
five: 2 points
six: 4 points
seven: 6 points
eight and above: 8 points
