missing words
  • VEGEboss at 2017-12-04

    is possible to signal missing words in a dictionary?
    and... how to add them?

    In English games, they are using the SOWPODS list.  I have never noticed any missing.  Perhaps you have a misunderstanding about the rules (that happened to me more than once here).

    I’m not sure what he is using for other languages.

    I did find a few words missing. For example:

    baedeker: http://www.dictionary.com/browse/baedeker

    gemless: http://www.dictionary.com/browse/gem?s=t

    heroe: Obsolete form of hero. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/heroe

    HEROE should be a valid word.  I do not believe that the others are playable in Scrabble.  In any case, there are not in the SOWPODS list:

    BTW, I was unable to play HEROE at the end of this game:


    That’s how I found it’s missing

    Hmmm.....  I must admit to being confused.  I would have thought it would have been playable.  Did you ask Richard?

  • gamesorry at 2017-12-05

    Just asked Richard regarding the valid words and hopefully he can answer the question :)

    Was there an answer to your question?

    In the Spanish version, there are a lot of missing words. I have sent a message to Richard but haven’t heard from him in return so far. It is very frustrating to find good words just to realize that they are not accepted...
