created on by  in Word Lists

There are some new vowel dumps in Scrabble allowed in the word lists of the TWL14 and CSW15. So now you have even more options for getting rid of extra E’s and A’s and O’s. We will introduce these new Scrabble words to you.

What is a Vowel Dump?

Before I show you the new vowel dumps in Scrabble maybe we’ll clarify the term “vowel dump” first. It is a special Scrabble term for words that contain many vowels. An example is the word ADIEU. Learning vowel dumps by heart can be very useful when your rack is full of vowels. You can’t get many points with them – but they will clear your rack and make space for better letter tiles.
