What is a good online source for legal scrabble words?

Asked by WestRiverrat (19878 points ) November 15th, 2011

A couple cousins and I are starting an email scrabble game as a way to keep in touch. We want to use a single source for the words. Our problem is we each have a different favorite.

The only requirements are it has to be free, and it has to be available.

Can you help us decide which online source to use? Why would you use it?

Can’t get much closer that the game maker.

Hey, if you cannot agree on an online source, then both of you go to a bookstore and buy the Official Scrabble Handbook in paperback.

Its right there for both of you on a questionable word.

Scrabble on Facebook, you can play each other on line and it has a built in scrabble dictionary.

A scrabble dictionary.

In the UK, the official dictionary for use in Scrabble is Chambers*. It’s online here: http://www.chambersharrap.co.uk/chambers/features/chref/chref.py/main

*actually it’s not Chambers any more, they switched to Collins. Collins appears that it maybe has a free online dictionary but the page won’t load for me so I can’t tell.
