Ok, I know you didn't come here for a movie recommendation, but I found 'Bad Words' starring (and directed by) Jason Bateman to be pretty hilarious. As a bonus: I discovered a new low probability 8 letter word! It means 'splendid'. Oh and the film is rated R, btw.
Five letter words are often far along the study list, but the right one can sure get you out of a bind. I didn't know FLYTE, and it would've scored more points and balance my rack better than the play I made. It's an alternate spelling of FLITE, and means 'to quarrel'.
Everyone usually learns words like QI, QAT, QADI and QAID pretty quickly when playing competitive scrabble, and with good reason- they get played a lot! The new dictionary has several new additions that will be useful- here are a few you will be most likely to play first:
CINQ(S) cinque (the number five)
NIQAB/NIQAAB(S) a veil worn by Muslim women
QIBLA(S) kibla/kiblah the direction Muslims face while praying
A word you'll likely see played a bit when the OSPD5 is enacted is TAJINES. The + symbol indicates that it's been added to the new TWL; words that are still only acceptable in CSW- international scrabble lexicon- are indicated with a # I.e. JANTIES#)
Also new to the OSPD5 is TAGINES (alternate spelling and even higher probability)
While JANTIES# isn't in it, JANTY was already in the last version. (Alternate spelling of JAUNTY)
