My scrabble tour continues to use words not found in the dictionary. These words include uraie, veep, doge. There are also many abreviations such as aa, oi, qi. these are not in the dictionary. The program will not allow me to use words like am, amore, cram. is this normal fo scrabble?

Hi Linda,

The most important point to keep in mind with any Scrabble game is that the words that are used in that game are taken from a special Scrabble dictionary, which does include word such as

uraie - which is the plural of Uraeus, and which is a symbol for the goddess Wadjet, one of the earliest of Egyptian deities

veep - which can refer to:

* The village of St Veep in Cornwall.
* Saint Veep, after whom the village is named.
* A colloquialism for vice president.
* A soft drink once made by Canada Dry.

doge - which is a dialectal Italian word that descends from the Latin dux

So, even though your dictionary does not contain all of the words used in Scrabble, those words are all legal words.

The dictionary which is used in most Encore Scrabble games is Merriam-Webster's Official SCRABBLE Player’s Dictionary, 3rd Edition.

As to where you said this:

"There are also many abreviations such as aa, oi, qi. these are not in the dictionary."

Once again, even though those abbreviations are not in your dictionary, those abbreviations are considered to be legal words in the dictionary which is built into Scrabble.

And, as to where you said this:

"The program will not allow me to use words like am, amore, cram."

When I checked my Scrabble Journey, I found that Scrabble Journey does allow me to use words like am, amore, cram. However, it is very important to keep in mind that you will not be able to use words like am, amore, cram if more than one letter in those words is touched by another letter - because, since Scrabble is a lot like Crosswords, all letters that touch must form a legal word.

BTW: I have removed your email address from your post - to prevent spammers from using that email address.
