Skulk Hollow: what information is available in a discard pile?

Suppose one of the taboo words is "Chinese"; could the player say something like "Someone from China…"? We had a disagreement because the word is clearly a very close mutation but there aren’t any subwords which match (like "baseball"<=>"ball").
