Getting 403 error "Authentication failed" on Entries and Words endpoint (English only)

Hi - I'm signed up as a new user and have been unable to get the Entries and Words endpoints to work in English (en, en-gb, en-us) - result is 403 Authentication Failed. Curiously, these endpoints do work in languages other than English.

It fails in the online documentation examples as well as when called via Swift in an iPhone app I am working on.

The Lemma API is working correctly for me in English
The Words and Entries endpoints work in French and Spanish, hence why I think this is a bug.

I am using a DEVELOPER licence.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello @john_applom
    We have recently made some changes to the features available in our Developer plan, which no longer offers access to English monolingual datasets, including sentence dictionary and thesaurus, and Spanish sentence dictionary.

    Access to English datasets and our Spanish sentence dictionary is available through our Enterprise plan or Prototype plan (in Entries and Lemmas endpoints only).

    To try our endpoints and English datasets on the Documentation page, you need to log out of your account. If you are logged in, the Documentation will try to make the calls based on your registered plan.

    Let me know if you have further questions.

    You can check the Enterprise plan here in our website page.
