is possible to signal missing words in a dictionary?
and... how to add them?

In English games, they are using the SOWPODS list. I have never noticed any missing. Perhaps you have a misunderstanding about the rules (that happened to me more than once here).
I’m not sure what he is using for other languages.

Just asked Richard regarding the valid words and hopefully he can answer the question :)
