Do any of you play Words with Friends? I am trying to figure out how they get the words. And of course you can't argue anything because you just can't press "play" if they don't think it's a word. But I have good evidence (dictionary entries) that it is a word (such as ok or cuz) so it's a little annoying. And I hate to lose.
It is like online scrabble with friends, except you can only play those words they allow. I've just started playing so I haven't learned their allowed words yet, but my partner has and uses them. So I am losing!
Yes, I so see your point, Goofy. And I get mad that certain letters aren't a word. I was so wishing there were a word "quaser" as I'd have gotten 129 points! Unfortunately I didn't have 2 "a's."
As far as "jin," the words shouldn't be in other languages nor should they be proper nouns so I don't get it, and she got a lot of points with it. I did find "aa," though I wonder how many times it has been used - or how many people know it.
As I thought about it, while I agree with Goofy that Words with Friends is different from Scrabble (the latter probably requiring more knowledge), I still learn from it. When my opponent posts words like aa, I look them up - and get mad because I don't think jin is legit.
