Hi there

I did read the rules so I AM aware that the lack of certain words affect both players in a game the same way!! BUT having said that it is frustrating NOT to be able to play words like JO / TAXI / QI / EF etc etc. I am unsure if it is a definite thing that certain word lists are copyrighted BUT I founf this link which seems to indicate that the ENABLE word list as well as the YAWL word list ARE free and downloadeble!

So is it possible to ask IF at the least the ENABLE word list can be used for the Word Game here please as I think that will help more people want to play the Word game at this site.

he link I found is:

http://personal.riverusers.com/~thegrendel/software.html

Zoo is shortened from zoological garden(s) and since abbreviations are not allowed, is ZOO removed from the Wordlist.
See also the Wordgamerules: http://www.yourturnmyturn.com/rules/wordgame.php
Slang, Abbreviations and Geographical names are not allowed.

Marianne, since abbreviations are not allowed, please remove "meth" from the wordlist. Could you also please explain the definition of the word: "taw"? I am familiair with tawdry and tawny, but never heard of "taw"?
Thanks so much!

Thank YOU very much!

IF it is ok then I will ask for other words to be added after due consideration by you guys but maybe I will wait awhile until I have a list large enough for your consideration rather than request a word be added every time I find one missing!

Taw(s) has several explanations:
1 It is a large marble used for shooting.
2 A game of marbles.
3 The line from witch the players shoot in marbles.
4 Taws: back to taws: Austral. back to the beginning.

Taw (vb): to convert (skins) into leather by treatment with alum and salt rather than by normal tanning processes.

Meth is removed from the wordlist.

So 3 new 2 letter words are now accepted in the game?

When 2 & 3 letter words are added, can we get them added to the 2/3 letter word list so I can print off a new list. PLUS Please make you let users know when some are added so we can print off new lists. Thanks

You better check regularly the 2/3 letterlist, because it can change. When new words are added into the wordlist they automatically come into that list. Or when words are removed out of the wordlist, they automatically are removed out of the 2/3 letterlist.
It is not possible to inform you.
