Overview

OSPD6

This page was created to help with the transition from OWL3/OSPD5 to OWL4/OSPD6. OSPD6 was released by Merriam-Webster on 24 September 2018.

We are still waiting to hear from NASPA when OWL4 (OTCWL2019?) will be available, but it won't be until Spring 2019 at the earliest.

This is page is a work in progress. Please email any comments, corrections, or suggestions to Rebecca.

History & Terminology

The Official Tournament and Club Word List, aka OTCWL or OWL, contains the list of 2-15 letter words acceptable in club and tournament Scrabble. The OWL is sanctioned by North American SCRABBLE Players Association, and is available to NASPA members only.

The Official SCRABBLE Players Dictionary, or OSPD, contains the list of 2-8 letter words (with limited definitions) and is used for School Scrabble, and home or casual play. The OSPD can be purchased by anyone.

  • OSPD6 : Official SCRABBLE Players Dictionary Sixth Edition (published 24 September 2018)
  • OSPD5 : Official SCRABBLE Players Dictionary Fifth Edition (published August 2014)
  • OSPD4 : Official SCRABBLE Players Dictionary Fourth Edition (published late 2005)
  • OWL4 = OTCWL2019 : Official Tournament and Club Word List 2019 Edition (anticipate publication in 2019, effective date unknown)
  • OWL3.1 = OTCWL2016 : Official Tournament and Club Word List 2016 (published in August 2016, effective date for tournament play 1 September 2016) minor update, added 1106 new words, mostly 9+ letters long
  • OWL3 = OTCWL2014 : Official Tournament and Club Word List 2014 Edition (published August 2014, effective for tournament play 10 April 2015)
  • OWL2 = OTCWL2006 : Official Tournament and Club Word List 2006 Edition (published early 2006, effective for tournament play 1 March 2006)

You should be able look up OSPD6 words at the Merriam-Webster Scrabble Word Finder website (click Tournament Mode and use your NASPA login to access the full list). There is an option to choose between "Tournament Mode" and "OSPD6", but be warned that "OSPD6" option doesn't show LOTS of very common words, so don't use it. Warning: after a few minutes of using the website, it will arbitrarily log you out of Tournament Mode so your results will change. Just be sure you are still in Tournament Mode when you are using the tool.

FAQs

Do you have a list of the "new words"?

Not yet. Merriam-Webster published OSPD6 on 24 September 2018, but did not issue a list of the new words - they just gave a few dozen and said "more than 300 were added". Folks have been combing through the print OSPD6 and also looking at M-W online to glean the list. You can see what has been found so far in the New Words OSDP6 section on this page.

NASPA has not released any specifics on new words for OWL, but in a 27 September 2018 email from NASPA, John Chew is quoted: "When the next OTCWL is ready, the list of its new words will be a free download for NASPA members."

Will all the new OSPD6 words be added to OWL?

We don't know yet. Ideally, OWL4 will include the updates to OSPD6, but there were tons of discrepancies between OSPD5 and OWL3, so we have no guarantees.

In a 27 September 2018 email from NASPA, John Chew is quoted "In principle, all of the new OSPD6 words should make it into the next edition of the OTCWL, after being vetted again by the Dictionary Committee."

When will OWL4 come out? When will the new words go into effect?

According to a 9/24/2018 NYT article, John Chew said that the OWL "won't be updated with the new Merriam-Webster additions until early next year" (i.e., 2019). NASPA has given no other dates or specifics.

Some observations: The new words can't go into effect for tournament (and club) play without giving players at least a few months between the release date of the OWL and the effective date - to give folks enough time to learn them. Ditto for the new words being available on Zyzzva (for word adjudication and study).

If they want the new words to be in use for National's next year, they'll have to release the OWL and a working version in Zyzzyva! no later than April 2019. If they can't make that date, then they'll probably wait until after National's - or release it at National's for an effective date late in 2019, or even into 2020. Remember, OWL3 was released in August 2014 and was supposed to go into effect December of that year, but the effective date was delayed an additional 5 months(!), to April of 2015.

New Words OSPD6

The words listed below are found in the Merriam-Webster Scrabble Word Finder website, which was recently updated to OSPD6. Most of them have also been verified in print versions of OSPD6. Thanks to the hard work of all the folks who have contributed to this effort!

Numbers so far:

Words added to OSPD6 = 343,
number of those words already in OWL3 = 54,
so the number of words that are new to us = 289.
[number not already in CSW15 = 193]

This list is very much a work in progress. Please send corrections or additions to: to Rebecca.
