If you think that there is a word in our list that, according to our rules, is not allowed you can ask for removal here.
You can use this topic also for asking the meaning of a specific word.

hello

one of my opponents put down the word 'ohs'.
If that's the plural of 'oh', as in an exclamation of surprise, wouldn't that be spelled with an apostrophe?

Words spelled with an apostrophe, or a hyphen or a circumflex or a stress-mark or something like that are allowed, but a tilde is not allowed.

No, it is a correct word, also used in English. "Had his meal chez Suzanne (at ...'s place)"
"I drove home with the intention of paying that triste visite chez mon oncle."

Marianne, is the word "trooz" valid? I can only find it in Wikipedia, as follows

Trooz

Trooz is a municipality located in the Belgian province of Liège. On January 1 2006 Trooz had a total population of 7,641. The total area is 24.20 km² which gives a population density of 316 inhabitants per km².

Sounds like a proper name to me. Are they acceptable?

Thanks

Mike

That is not correct, simply and solely Dutch geographical names are allowed there.
This is the Eglish site and here it is not allowed.
