What the Fuck is ADE?

 

My friends and I were playing scrabble at home. I can’t think of any word to put, I have the letters A E and D.

 

 

 

L A W

A D E

 

“What the fuck is ADE?” sabi ni Bingo. “I know AIDE. But what in hell is ADE!”

“Meron nyan! Check mo pa sa Dictionary.” I said. And he checked his mobile dictionary for the meaning of the word ADE.

Word not Found!

 

“You have to update your software man! Meron talaga nyan.” Sabi ko.

“I know there’s such a word. I think pareho lang ng meaning yung ade and aide. Magkaiba lang ng ispelling, parang meter at metre.” Sabi nung isa kung friend. Itago na lang natin sya sa pangalang Marikit d’Birthday Gurl! More support si ateh sa akin bilang bestest friend ko sya. Syempre tawa lang ako ng tawa. Chuz!

At dahil katiwatiwala ako, eh they all believed me. Nyahaha!

Actually I already checked SOWPODS master list of accepted three letter words. And I didn’t find the word ADE in the list. So I knew that ‘ade’ is not a word. But ey, I needed the extra points. Nyahaha! So I had to wear my best poker face to make them believe me.

By the way, here is a list of accepted three letter words that starts with letter A kung nakyu-curious kayo:

AAH  AAL  ABA  ABB  ABO  ABY  ACE  ACH  ACT  ADD  ADO  ADZ+
AFF  AFT  AGA  AGE  AGO  AHA  AIA  AID  AIL  AIM  AIN  AIR  AIT
AKE  ALA  ALB  ALE  ALL  ALP  ALT  AMA  AMI  AMP  AMU  ANA  AND
ANE  ANI  ANN  ANT  ANY  APE  APT*  ARB  ARC  ARD  ARE  ARF  ARK
ARM  ART  ARY  ASH  ASK  ASP  ASS+ ATE  ATT AUF  AUK  AVA  AVE
AVO  AWA  AWE  AWL  AWN  AXE  AYE  AYU  AZO

ADE is not included in the list.

So, does that mean ADE is not at all a word?

According to Wikipedia:

An ade is a beverage made from diluted fruit juice and sweetener. It is usually used as a suffix, as in lemonade, limeade and orangeade. An ade is generally a combination of fruit juice, sugar and water. Ades are not usually carbonated except in certain regions, such as the British Isles and some other parts of Europe.

But when I checked Merriam-Webster:

3 entries found for ade

Ade

Main Entry: Ade
Pronunciation: 'Ad
Function: biographical name
George 1866-1944 American humorist & playwright

ade

ade can be found at Merriam-WebsterUnabridged.com.

-ade

Main Entry: -ade

Etymology: French, from Middle French, from Old Occitan -ada, from Late Latin -ata, from Latin, feminine of -atus -ate

Well, I guess there really is no such word huh! OK, suffix na kung suffix. Shet!

Pero nde ko aaminin ke Bingo. I will not tell him my boo-boo noh! LOL! Nyahahaha!

  4. ADE kasi is considered a suffix, kaya hindi siya considered even sa mga official Scrabble matches.
