OK, I think I have made this too hard. Here's a hint, feel free to read or not.

Spoiler:
You need to know which letters count. If you do, but it still doesn't add up, remember history - Professor Jones will tell you that's how you avoid falling into a trap.

Has everyone given up on this? Here's a clearer hint - it won't give the whole thing away even if you completely get the hint.

Spoiler:
You need to know which letters count. You can ignore all the rest (along with any non-letters). You do know which letters count! You are probably expecting seven of them, but for historical reasons I've included another two (nine in total). Once you've identified the letters that count it will add up nicely. Then you need to figure out the last bit on your own...


And some more words:

virus
viruses
ivies
put
vat
vet
veto
vetoing
unvetoing

OK, no replies for ages, so I think everyone's given up. Here's a much more blatant hint:

Spoiler:
You can ignore any non-letters, and any letters other than C, D, I, J, L, M, U, V, or X. They are not case sensitive, and the order of the letters in the word doesn't matter. Any word that doesn't contain at least one I, J, U or V will never match the rule.

I thought that the rule was "the sum of Roman numerals in the word is an odd number", but there are some examples here contradicting the theory.


I'm going to try:

Sorry, missed that heuristically_alone posted a guess:
Only words containing I, J, U or V unless it contains C, D, I, J, L, M, U, V, or X


That's not correct. "it" and "five" do not match my rule, while words like "organic", "edict" and "imperialism" do.

The sum of Roman numerals in the word is a prime number.

I'll pass, since I'll be away for a while starting next week. Whoever wants to can come up with the next rule.

I've got one. A hint, and this is a very vague hint, the rule could be made into a regular expression.
