Last August (2014) I reported that the US Scrabble people, in order to keep up with the new technologies and new discoveries, had added over 5000 new words to their Scrabble dictionary (click on Buy My Books button). This dictionary, while optional in August, was made mandatory as of December, 2014. I had to update my Scrabble book to add these new words (and selected definitions).
Well, the folks at UK Scrabble apparently didn’t want to be left behind, and added not only the 5000 new words from the Americans, but added a few hundred more words of their own.
So I just had to issue another new edition of the book to keep up with their changes.
Here is the blurb and the link to order new books
This updated edition covers the following;
1) All two and three lettered words
2) Q without U words (and even words that have more than one Q in them)
3) Borrowed words from French (250 words), Spanish (250 words), Latin (200 words), Greek (150 words), Hebrew/Yiddish (450 words), German (175 words), Russian, Japanese, and even Hawaiian
4) Proper nouns that are allowed in Scrabble and WWF
5) List of prefixes and suffixes to make your word longer.
6) Lists of words that can help you get rid of unwanted vowels and other letters
7) Strategies for when you have to turn in letters and for creating bingos
8) Lists of acceptable words used Astronomy, Baseball, Chess, Computers, Mythology, and more!
