This is a great book to have alongside when playing Scrabble. I've given it 4 stars rather than 5 as there are some words missing, i.e.' Qin' and some other two letter words that appear in different versions of scrabble dictionaries.
Still great to have though if you play Scrabble the way we do. I'd also recommend the official Scrabble timer as well - it keeps the game moving along nicely.
A great reference for the avid scrabble player. Each word has it's suffix varieties, (eg FIX, 'ES, 'ING, 'ED) then a brief explanation for confirm the meaning of the word.
My only drawback is that, with this book being American, there are words that us English speakers wouldn't use. for example "ET - The past tense of eat". Obviously in English we use ATE, with ET being used as a colloquialism.
But that being said with an Englilsh Dictionary as a second reference to answer the questionable Americanisms, this is a quick and easy reference to be used.
I bought my copy from a US seller through Amazon for about £1. Bargain.
This just what we needed an up to date scrabble dictionary. Being a paperback it is also lighter to take when we are travelling. (We don't verify on line.) The only fault we have is that the print is a bit small.
