When I was younger, I used to play Scrabble with my Nan after Countdown with a cup of tea (I couldn't sound even more British if I tried) and I remember the crazy Scrabble bosses saying proper nouns could be used. Now, Scrabble have tried again to appeal to us with slang words. If the world Scrabble championships didn't accept the proper nouns rule, I definitely know they won't accept these new words
I'm sorry, I am still not comfortable with the word webinar. Mash up words make me feel dirty and this one isn't an exception.
A hactivist is a person who expresses their activist message through hacking accounts and websites.
Come on! Even when the creator of the word, Lethal Bizzle, says "Dench means anything you want"; how can it be accepted in Scrabble? A word needs a definition!
Now this is ridiculous. The Scrabble rules say that abbreviations of words are not allowed, so how can obvs be used!
Another contradiction of the rules! Acronyms can't be used either! LOL stands for laugh out loud. But I'm guessing if you put a score 10 letter after, it makes it fine.
Just no! I can just picture me playing this word and then trying to explain/show what twerking is to my nan?!?!
Another word mash up that needs to die a hard death. I really don't want to explain this one to my nan after
Onomatopoeic words have no place here. This word is my spelling of yes when I was in primary school. Does not count in my book
Now I feel like my cousin from Essex is writing the new Scrabble dictionary. It is "lots of"
Scrabble dictionary writers are just having a laugh now. Tweep - someone who tweets? I thought that was a tweeter? Am I right? Or am I loosing my mind?
This is worse than a mash up word as now they are not even trying to remove letters. If this was hyphenated, then I may have accepted it but cake and hole are two separate words.
The word is thanks! How many times I have argued with friends that thank you are two separate words over a game of Scrabble are countless. Don't add this pathetic word into that argument too.
The spelling is was. W-A-S! No Z! No U even! Damn me being angry over something so British!
Definition :- A shoe that covers the ankle. I'm sorry people who make up words, that definition is taken by a basketball shoe/ Converse!
You cannot add "ed" to any word and make it a new word! Def Con Level is 1!
That is it. I am done with this abomination of the English language. I'm going to play Boggle instead!
