2 and 3 letter Scrabble words
Here are all two-letter words and three-letter words acceptable for use in Scrabble(R). I included thoseTWL(Tournament Word List), a standard North American list used by many online Scrabble sites, followed by the more extensive international oneSOW BOWLlist. Pay attention to which version you are playing! If you've reached this page, you probably already realize the importance of these words to success at winning at Scrabble, especially the two-letter words. Knowing what words are acceptable—even if you have no idea what their definition is—is a perfectly legitimate strategy, and all experienced players have all the two-letter words, and often the three-letter words, memorized. While not a great way to increase your vocabulary, it is an excellent way to improve your game. Much luck!
This page is part ofThe Phrontisterium, a site dedicated to love and the study of obscure and unusual words, including the dictionary of over 17000 words of rare words, theInternational House of Logorrheaand theCompendium of Lost Words. If you find this page helpful, you may enjoy mine tooGlossaries of current words, my material ondigits and numbering, my blog,Glossographie, and much more.
|This is the official list of acceptable words for American tournament play, approved by theNational Scrabble Associationin 2006. It is based on the Official Scrabble Players' Dictionary (OSPD), with some modifications to better reflect the rules of the game.|
