Memorize this list of 2 letter Scrabble words before your next free online Scrabble game or offline Scrabble board game to improve your success! Or at least keep this list handy as a reference.
I have crossed-checked each of these words using the Official Scrabble Dictionary.
Many of these words are quite odd, and not words you would normally use in a conversation. But they are official, and you can use them in regular Scrabble play.
Following each 2 letter Scrabble word, I have included the definition. By knowing the definition, you can seem even more intelligent if someone questions your use of the word during a game.
