Frequently Asked Questions
What's with the flags in the corner?
There are two official Scrabble dictionaries: one that is used in North America, and one that is used in the United Kingdom and the rest of the world. The UK dictionary (called CSW - Collins Scrabble Words) contains all of the words in the US dictionary (TWL - Tournament Word List) plus several thousand more.
So, click on the flag that represents the dictionary you use, and if you Americans want to play words like ZO or DUX, just find another person who shares your opinion!
The game I'm playing doesn't accept my word!
This site uses official Scrabble wordlists as its source. Some online games may be using a different source for their words.
Where do I type in my letters?
You don't. There are plenty of websites out there that will turn your random letters into words. We recommend Anagrammer.
You're missing a list.
Yes, we are. In fact, we're missing millions of lists. But if you think there's a word list that should be featured on our site, head over to the contact form. We will consider the good suggestions and ignore the bad ones. Just kidding! We'll consider all suggestions regardless of quality.
I play word games in <insert language here>; where are those lists?
Currently, we only offer word lists in the English language. Other languages are difficult because there often isn't an official wordlist for them.
