Can't get the word 'course using API

The entry spelled 'course, I can't get it with the API. It's clearly in the dictionary. It's not the initial apostrophe that's causing the problem because I can get the word 'arf. Interestingly, when I look up 'arf, the API changes it to %27arf.

    Hello @kfoley513

    I've forwarded your question to my colleagues in the technical team so hopefully myself or one of them should be able to get back to you - bear with us!

    Hello @kfoley513

    My colleagues had a look at this case, and it seems 'course doesn't exist in our dataset, however, 'arf does.

    The API automatically encodes special characters like apostrophes and diacritics. But we suggest you to use URL encoding in all requests to the API.

    I hope it helped, let us know if you have more issues.
