UK flag English CSW2012 - over 270000 words


Official Scrabble logo

CSW or Collins Scrabble Words is the global world source used in Scrabble. CSW2012 is the newest edition, in previous years the global word list was also known as SOWPODS. CSW is not a single dictionary but an amalgam of three: Collins (7th edition, 2005), Chambers (1998 edition) and TWL, the current Northern American word list. TWL itself is also drawn from a range of sources.

WESPA along with David Sutton have produced some documents to give you lots of information on the changes from CSW2007 to CSW2012. You'll find these on the WESPA site:

Irish flag Irish - over 247000 words

The Irish dictionary is based on Kevin Scannell's GaelSpell word list. It will accept any correctly-inflected or mutated word form in Irish; so, for example, tiocfaidh, bróige, or mbean are all acceptable words. If you prefer to not to allow such words, you and your opponent can agree on this informally. The other major difference from the 'official' game is the use of lenited consonants on single tiles; there are no H tiles at all. We believe this significantly improves game play over the official version where there are far too few H tiles.

Scottish flag Scottish Gaelic - over 145000 words

The Scottish Gaelic dictionary is based on data from the Faclair Beag, via the Scottish Gaelic Hunspell spellchecker, plus any headword from Dwelly's dictionary. It allows correctly inflected forms of words (minus words containing hyphens or apostrophes such as taigh-tasgaidh or dh'fhàg) to be played. So bròg, bhròg, bròig, bhròig, brògan, bhrògan, brògaibh etcetera are all permissible words. Note that not all inflected forms of rare words in Dwelly are available just now.
The other main point worth noting is that in order to improve gameplay, there is no H tile and instead the following digraphs exist as separate tiles: BH, CH, DH, FH, GH, MH, PH, SH and TH and also LL, NN and RR.
