  • KY (5+4)

  • JO (8+1)

       A sweetheart; a darling. [Scot.] --Burns. 
       [1913 Webster]

The Letter X

This letter is worth 8 points. Possible combinations are as follows:

  • AX (1+8)
    Ax Ax, Axe Axe, ([a^]ks), n. [OE. ax, axe, AS. eax, [ae]x, 
       acas; akin to D. akse, OS. accus, OHG. acchus, G. axt, Icel. 
       ["o]x, ["o]xi, Sw. yxe, Dan. ["o]kse, Goth. aqizi, Gr. 
       'axi`nh, L. ascia; not akin to E. acute.] 
       A tool or instrument of steel, or of iron with a steel edge 
       or blade, for felling trees, chopping and splitting wood, 
       hewing timber, etc. It is wielded by a wooden helve or 
       handle, so fixed in a socket or eye as to be in the same 
       plane with the blade. The broadax, or carpenter's ax, is an 
       ax for hewing timber, made heavier than the chopping ax, and 
       with a broader and thinner blade and a shorter handle. 
       [1913 Webster] 
       Note: The ancient battle-ax had sometimes a double edge. 
             [1913 Webster] 
       Note: The word is used adjectively or in combination; as, 
             axhead or ax head; ax helve; ax handle; ax shaft; 
             ax-shaped; axlike. 
             [1913 Webster] 
       Note: This word was originally spelt with e, axe; and so also 
             was nearly every corresponding word of one syllable: 
             as, flaxe, taxe, waxe, sixe, mixe, pixe, oxe, fluxe, 
             etc. This superfluous e is not dropped; so that, in 
             more than a hundred words ending in x, no one thinks of 
             retaining the e except in axe. Analogy requires its 
             exclusion here. 
             [1913 Webster] 
       Note: "The spelling ax is better on every ground, of 
             etymology, phonology, and analogy, than axe, which has 
             of late become prevalent." --New English Dict. 
             (Murray). 
             [1913 Webster]
  • EX (1+8)
    ex ex ([e^]ks), n. [contraction] 
       An ex-wife or ex-husband; a former spouse; -- used usually 
       with a possessive; as, she invited her ex to her second 
       wedding; her ex; his ex; John's ex. [informal] 
       [PJC]
    ex ex ([e^]ks), n. 
       The letter x. 
       [PJC]
    ex ex ([e^]ks), prep. (Finance) 
       Without (some right); not including the right to have; as, a 
       stock selling ex dividend (a stock for which the right to a 
       dividend has expired the previous day); ex interest; ex 
       rights. 
       [PJC]
    Ex- Ex- ([e^]ks). 
       A prefix from the latin preposition, ex, akin to Gr. 'ex or 
       'ek signifying out of, out, proceeding from. Hence, in 
       composition, it signifies out of, as, in exhale, exclude; 
       off, from, or out, as in exscind; beyond, as, in excess, 
       exceed, excel; and sometimes has a privative sense of 
       without, as in exalbuminous, exsanguinous. In some words, it 
       intensifies the meaning; in others, it has little affect on 
       the signification. It becomes ef- before f, as in effuse. The 
       form e- occurs instead of ex- before b, d, g, l, m, n, r, and 
       v, as in ebullient, emanate, enormous, etc. In words from the 
       French it often appears as es-, sometimes as s- or ['e]-; as, 
       escape, scape, ['e]lite. Ex-, prefixed to names implying 
       office, station, condition, denotes that the person formerly 
       held the office, or is out of the office or condition now; 
       as, ex-president, ex-governor, ex-mayor, ex-wife, ex-convict. 
       The Greek form 'ex becomes ex in English, as in exarch; 'ek 
       becomes ec, as in eccentric. 
       [1913 Webster]
  • OX (1+8)
    Ox Ox ([o^]ks), n.; pl. {Oxen}. [AS. oxa; akin to D. os. G. 
       ochs, ochse, OHG. ohso, Icel. oxi, Sw. & Dan. oxe, Goth. 
       a['u]hsa, Skr. ukshan ox, bull; cf. Skr. uksh to sprinkle. 
       [root]214. Cf. {Humid}, {Aurochs}.] (Zool.) 
       The male of bovine quadrupeds, especially the domestic animal 
       when castrated and grown to its full size, or nearly so. The 
       word is also applied, as a general name, to any species of 
       bovine animals, male and female. 
       [1913 Webster] 
             All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field. 
                                                      --Ps. viii. 7. 
       [1913 Webster] 
       Note: The castrated male is called a steer until it attains 
             its full growth, and then, an ox; but if castrated 
             somewhat late in life, it is called a stag. The male, 
             not castrated, is called a bull. These distinctions are 
             well established in regard to domestic animals of this 
             genus. When wild animals of this kind are spoken of, ox 
             is often applied both to the male and the female. The 
             name ox is never applied to the individual cow, or 
             female, of the domestic kind. Oxen may comprehend both 
             the male and the female. 
             [1913 Webster] 
       {Grunting ox} (Zool.), the yak. 
       {Indian ox} (Zool.), the zebu. 
       {Javan ox} (Zool.), the banteng. 
       {Musk ox}. (Zool.) See under {Musk}. 
       {Ox bile}. See {Ox gall}, below. 
       {Ox gall}, the fresh gall of the domestic ox; -- used in the 
          arts and in medicine. 
       {Ox pith}, ox marrow. [Obs.] --Marston. 
       {Ox ray} (Zool.), a very large ray ({Dicerobatis Giornae}) of 
          Southern Europe. It has a hornlike organ projecting 
          forward from each pectoral fin. It sometimes becomes 
          twenty feet long and twenty-eight feet broad, and weighs 
          over a ton. Called also {sea devil}. 
       {To have the black ox tread on one's foot}, to be 
          unfortunate; to know what sorrow is (because black oxen 
          were sacrificed to Pluto). --Leigh Hunt. 
          [1913 Webster]
  • XI (8+1)
    xi xi, adj. 
       The Roman number symbolizing the value eleven. Used after a 
       noun it may symbolize the ordinal number; as, Superbowl XI. 
       Syn: eleven, 11. 
            [WordNet 1.5]

  1. whoa. so those words really are existing… i love scrabble. thanks!

  2. i use those words minsan, kapag desperado na. but oftentimes, ako yung gumagawa ng mahahabang words, kahit na konti lang ang points. ewan, i felt proud kapag nakakabuo ako ng ‘splendid’ or something.
    😛

  3. I don’t get it. Kung walang meaning ang isang word, bakit pa rin siya valid sa Scrabble? This game is supposed to be about “actual” words, di ba?

  4. @maruja – I actually have no idea too. Been wondering ever since. Ill try to find out.
