Expurgated Words

In June 2020, NASPA proposed removing "slurs" from the word list. Despite a sizeable number of players opposing the plan, NASPA decided to remove 259 "offensive slurs" from the official list, and the new purged NWL2020 list goes into effect for club and tournament play on 6 January 2021. [See the NASPA website for more explanation]

The list below has been updated to show these deletions: Words purged from NWL2020 are shown with strikethrough; words that have been newly expurgated and purged are shown as ORANGE.

The following list of words are valid in OWL4 (OTCWL2018), but omitted from OSPD6 because they were deemed to be "offensive".

Note that OSPD only contains words up to 8 letters long, plus their extensions, so words whose root is 9+ letters long would never be printed in OSPD in the first place. So, those longer words have been found by hand and are presumed to be expurgated should a "Long List" version of OSPD ever be created.

  • Words purged from NWL2020 are shown with strikethrough; words that have been newly expurgated and purged are shown as ORANGE
  • New OWL4 words that are expurgated are shown in DARK MAGENTA
  • New OWL3.1 words that are expurgated are shown in BLUE
  • New OWL3 words that are expurgated are shown in BOLD
  • Words in [BRACKETS] are related acceptable words that have a "non-offensive" definition.
  • {CURLY BRACES} indicate words that were printed in OSPD3 or OSPD4 but removed from OSPD5 (newly expurgated).
