To date, there are 105 two-letter words playable in the game of Scrabble. The following ranking has nothing to do with point values.

All definitions provided by the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary. While many of these words have several meanings, I chose to use the first definition listed.

Definition: "used to express protest, disgust, or disbelief"

Better definition: used to express how cute a dog is when you pass it on the street but can't pet it since you're not sure if it's ok with the owner, so you audibly react instead.

Definition: "hmm"

Perfect for when you don't know how to respond to someone. For example, I'll send my manager this post and say, "Hey Matt, what do you think?" and he'll probably reply, "Hm," because it'll have rendered him speechless and not in a good way.

Definition: "the heraldic color gold"

This word easily could have ended up with the rest of the usuals up top, but thankfully Merriam-Webster decided to provide us with the more interesting definition.
