As a result of requests for adding words in our Word list, we have decided that we only will add words that can be found in the Collins English Dictionary: http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english or the TheFreeDictionary: http://www.thefreedictionary.com.

Not allowed:
Slang, Abbreviations (short for), Informal language and Geographical names are not allowed (Words/verbs derived from an abbreviation are not allowed as well).
Brand (names) or trademark is not allowed too.
Proper names and words derivative from a proper name.


Only American and English words are allowed.

And keep in mind we do have other rules for valid words then Scrabble.

Only headwords are allowed. And quo doesn't exit as a stand alone word.

I've checked and it is only used in Scotland:
ae
adj. Chiefly Scots
One.
Variant of a2.
(as in a boss, or a house, a region.
We play Wordgame only with American and English words.
Not added.
