Two Letter Word List for Scrabble, Wordfeud, Words With Friends, Word For Word, Literati, etc...

Two letter words can open up high-scoring possibilities in crossword-style games such as Scrabble, Wordfeud, and Words with Friends. An understanding of which two letter words are acceptable is one of the key skills necessary to become a better player of these games.

Knowing which dictionary (or word list) is being used to govern game-play is essential in order to determine whether any particular two letter word is acceptable. In Scrabble tournaments two word lists are generally used:

  1. The SOWPODS word list is widely used in the UK and the Commonwealth
  2. The TWL06 word list is generally used to govern tournaments in North America

As a rule of thumb, if you are playing in "British English" use the SOWPODS word list and if you are playing in "American English" use the TWL06 word list.

SOWPODS Two Letter Word List

The SOWPODS word list contains more two letter words than the TWL06 word list. It contains at least one two letter word for each letter of the alphabet excluding 'V'.

The TWA06 word list replaces the TWA98 word list. The inclusion of the words QI and ZA (which were not included in the TWA98 list) makes it much easier to play the high-scoring Q and Z tiles.

Memorising the two letter word lists

Let's face it - memorising lists of two letter words is an extremely boring thing to do. Much better to just bookmark this page and refer to it when playing friendly games of online Scrabble, Wordfeud, Literati, etc... After a while you will start to remember the acceptable two letter words just by using them in real game play.
