I was looking for this post and it took me forever to find it, so I'm reposting it at the end of the thread, and I'll edit it into the Phase 3 post on Page One of the thread as well.

I didn't realise until now that it has a word builder feature, so looking through other resources is no longer necessary.

however i am still looking for confirmation.. i believe its regulatory in the english scrabble rules, but does the TO concur?

"Eveywhere" in hoopy_frood's writeup should be understood in the American sense of the word, since Scrabble is available in many different language versions. Even among English speakers, the standard dictionary used for official tournament Scrabble in the UK and Ireland is the Chambers dictionary, which has traditionally been favoured for word games over the various editions of the OED (generally, if unfoundedly, considered the most authoritative British English dictionary - professional writers and their ilk tend to go for the single-volume Longman or Collins English dictionaries, but I digress) because the latter list all their headwords with initial caps, making it difficult to distinguish proper nouns. Chambers also publish Official Scrabble Words, a definition-free wordlist drawn from the dictionary including all valid inflected forms of words from 2 to 9 letters, and Official Scrabble Lists, which lists words on the basis of various game-related criteria.

For transatlantic tournaments (including the anglophone version of the World Championships), players are allowed to use words from both British and American lists. In fact, both lists include both British and American spelling variants, but there are differences with the obscure two- and three-letter words that are so vital for tournament play.

The equivalent work for French-speaking Scrabble players, on both sides of the pond, is the Officiel du Scrabble published by Larousse under the aegis of the Fédération internationale du Scrabble francophone, which does include definitions.


(wikipedia)
TCD is widely used by British crossword solvers and setters, and by Scrabble players (though it is no longer the official Scrabble dictionary). It contains many more dialectal, archaic, unconventional and eccentric words than its rivals, and is noted for its occasional wryly humorous definitions. Examples of such definitions include those for éclair ("a cake, long in shape but short in duration") and middle-aged ("between youth and old age, variously reckoned to suit the reckoner").[2] These jocular definitions were removed by the publisher in the 1970s, but many of them were reinstated in 1983 because of the affection in which they were held by readers.

going from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrabble
http://www.mattelscrabble.com/en/adults/index.html
sadly the firewall prevented me from taking the last one page.. i did see benempt in the US version though..but not bynempt which would have been obsolete. I understand the british version holds the larger database

found
http://crosswords911.com/bynempt.html
where it is stated as a word by the british scrabble assotiation

I fell asleep last night while researching this and didn't finish my post.

Okay, bottom line is this:
For transatlantic tournaments (including the anglophone version of the World Championships), players are allowed to use words from both British and American lists.

Since CC has many players from Europe, it makes sense that we would allow both the British and American variants, just as the real transatlantic Scrabble tournaments do.

In Post 1 of this tournament thread,
Dukasaur wrote:The word must be in the standard Scrabble dictionary.

I did not, however, say "the Official Scrabble Dictionary as published by Hasbro", and it makes sense that our European players would assume that "standard Scrabble dictionary" means the British version. Here in North America, we are so accustomed to seeing the "Official Scrabble Dictionary" as published by Hasbro, that we don't even think that it might not be as "Official" as it claims, at least not in the rest of the world. It's unfortunate that there is no single "official" dictionary for the British version, but SOWPODS seems to be accepted by most as being the closest thing to it.

BYNEMPT is good.

For the record:
SirSebstar successfully defended his W from thekidstrumpet on the WWII Poland map.
(Game 9028843)

SirSebstar simultaneously seized an N from ckyrias on the NYC map.

Thus far, the following words have been posted:
DoomYoshi WAFFLES (E is free vowel, therefore only 15 pts.)
Gilligan IPOMOEA (the Os were free vowels, therefore only 9 pts.)
xSekirei BACKS (13 pts.)
SirSebstar BYNEMPT (16 pts.)


Umm, SirSebstar is making up words. Bynempt is not a word.

My word is Midweek. Good for 17 points, but I used 2 vowels, so I'm down to 15.

However, I reserve the right to change my word after I look at the British dictionary since apparently it has made up words in it.
