Anyone see the new acceptable words in Scrabble in the news this-morning??...they have added a number of new words to the game's dictionary, many of which are modern slang such as LOL and obvs. I would never really use these words but thought it was quite funny, and was wondering if any of you use modern slang?
I play on-line scrabble from an American site (Just Words) and some of the words they allow/disallow baffle me. English divided by the Atlantic Ocean.
I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to scrabble so I find some of the new list of acceptable words a bit hard to accept. We all had slang of our generation I suppose but would not have expected them to be used in scrabble
I play online Scrabble via Words with Friends, Gagagran, which I believe is also American. It allows some ludicrous letter combinations that I cannot call words, but wouldn't allow me to sweep to victory against my DS last week with the adjective yankee. Grr!
