Scrabble Adds 300 New Words To Official Dictionary

Time to brush up on your vocab. Scrabble is adding 300 new words to their official dictionary on Monday

Many of the new words in Merriam-Webster’s sixth edition of the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary come from today’s slang, such as beatdown, twerk, emoji, facepalm, and yowza. Food lovers will enjoy dropping Sriracha (which to me sounds like a proper name and therefore, no good) and bibimbap on the board. But perhaps the best news is that many two-letter words like “ok” and “ew” will now be acceptable as well as adding some relief for those who draw the dreaded letter Q.
