Great for Scrabblers!,

This review is from: Collins Official Scrabble Words (Paperback)
This is the latest official (I hope!) list of acceptable Scrabble words. (Very useful, but be aware that this is just a list of the words, not a dictionary.) Quick and easy to refer to, nicely set out, with clear print. There are two sections. The first section contains alphabetical lists of all the two to nine letter words, while the ten letter, and above, words are listed separately in alphabetical order towards the end of the book. Lots of new words have been added. Pity that Scrabble has been 'dumbed down' to include dubious, words such as 'za' (short for pizza?) and 'ja'. I had never understood why 'jeu' (French for 'game'?) was included, but sadly it's still in there! At least there's a standard list I suppose. The book is worth having anyway as not only can you check to see if your (or your opponent's) word is okay, but it helps improve your knowledge of acceptable (if somewhat obscure) words!
