Word Validator Updated

Written by bloggermark

Some of you gave some feedback that the paid version of the game was out of sync with the word validator on this site. Thanks to some help from David, the list should now be fully up-to-date. Thanks for your patience.

    Stupid game won’t take erasion. It’s a medical term and also means to erase. What the heck??????

  2. Bella says:

    Why is overneat not allowed? It’s a valid word.

  3. Chrystal Call says:

    WWF is not accepting “thowl”. Yes, it is an antiquated term (involving boats), but it is found in English dictionaries. It is not a proper noun or a foreign language. WWF accepts “twat”, but not this.
    Uh huh.

  4. Tony says:

    Why is Shiraz not a word????

  5. Danielle says:

    Xanadu is definitely a word!

    an idealized place of great or idyllic magnificence and beauty.
    “three architects and a planner combine to create a Xanadu”

  6. Connie says:

    WWF rejected sitz as in sitz bath. Why?

  7. Fran says:

  8. Ted says:

    FRAMES was not accepted when i attempted to play it! Really???

  9. Diane Basinet says:

    I am SICK of a game with “Words” on the title that won’t accept real words I double checked online. The plural of Syrah wine is Syrahs. It accepts Syrah but not Syrahs!!! The game developers should link this game to the dictionary.

  10. Blossom says:

    Why is ‘ethicalism’ not a word?

  11. Cyko says:

    Uzi is a word its a firearme from isrial

  12. Christy says:

    Why won’t it let me play “Ouija” !?!?
    it is a word according to dictionary.com, which words with friends says it uses.. but the dictionary in the WWF app doesn’t find it; and WWF says it is unacceptable.. Does anyone know.. Is their anyway to appeal WWF on a legit word it says is unacceptable?

  13. John says:

    How is American not accepted but names are? As well as America also not accepted!

  14. ross says:

    Guilted… Really not a word?

  15. Mark says:

    I wouldn’t care had they not been used for massive gains against me…

  16. Kevin says:

    So, over the past few days, several words have been classed as unacceptable. Today, these included “red” and “do” to show some clearly incorrect examples. I notice I have been using US English since I started WWF a few months ago and this problem is only apparrent since playing a friend who is registered UK English. I also note that there are now no definitions for my language which indeed seens very strange. Does anyone know a fix? I’m considering uninstalling and stsrting from scratch.

  17. Judy says:

    Many invalid words which aren’t invalid. Examples: made, maid, blam.

    What’s going on? Free version played on iPad.

  18. Amber says:

    I’ve been having a problem with Words with Friends. Lately, whenever I’ve played, half of the words that I’ve tried to play are invalid words. I listed a few below.


    And yes, the two letter word, “to,” wasn’t accepted. Also, last I checked there aren’t any two letter words containing the letter “c” that exist, yet “ce” is accepted. Can the makers of this game please fix this issue? Thanks. It’s quite annoying.

  19. Ske says:

    The word ‘obeyeth’ despite being all over the bible is not accepted.

  20. JPJ says:

    Why do so many people ‘contributing’ to this comments section not understand that this page is, and I quote, “The unofficial fan site for enthusiasts of Words With Friends”

    In other words, the people running this site have little or no influence over the makers of Words With Friends, and so cannot be demanded to “Please fix this”, or similar .

  21. Donna says:

    Why do you accept qat but not queso?

  22. davin says:

    ”Europe” was a word when I checked last but yet when you try to play it its not…

  23. Pat says:

    The word subocean -meaning” below the ocean floor.”
    Is acceptable in the dictionary and when I checked on line for Words with Friends list it is also showing as a valid word. However when I placed my tiles I receive” Sorry subocean is not an acceptable word.”

    I would use all my letters along with hitting a triple letter, a triple word and a double word space.
    Maybe Words with Friends can’t calculate the amount of points I’d receive?

  24. ZP75 says:

    PANADE should be added-a mixture of liquid and starch used to moisten ground meats.

  25. Naysh says:

    Avids – tiny green bugs, also a word, please update, many thanks!

  26. kristin says:

    Friday!! For 40 points it won’t let me play everyone’s favorite work day of the week!!!

  27. susan christian says:

    Tagine is an indian stew and a very commonly used word. How can it be unacceptable?? Many of your accepted words are foreign or abbreviated two letter terms. Even the original scrabble game would accept it. It’s in the dictionary.

    • JPJ says:

      A Tagine is North African in origin, but still, I agree it should be accepted…however, Words With Friends isn’t published/owned/maintained by the people running this website, so you’re complaining to the wrong people!

  28. monica says:

    Lyme is a word. LYME DISEASE

  29. Brittany says:

  31. Ethan says:

    You need to add these words:


    (that’s just from one afternoon)

    I can’t believe how many obsolete, lexicographic artifacts you allow and how many common words you prohibit.

  32. Mig says:

    Foilers is a word. Can this be updated in WWF? How long does this take to happen? Thanks

  33. MDC says:

    WWF won’t let me play “Aries”. Aries is a dictionary word.

  34. Beth Flugard says:

    the word enduct or enducts is considered a valid word in your word search, when I tried to play the word, it was not considered valid. The word is in your search dictionary.

  35. Mike says:

    Why won’t WWF allow me to play indians?

    How can Waugh (as in writer Evelyn) be a word yet pho (Vietnamese soup) and quo (as in status quo) not be words?? WWF staff nedd to check out a dictionary of words accepted in English language!

  44. Cassie says:

    ‘Endurer’ is obviously a valid dictionary word. Words with friends finds it unacceptable.

  45. Kim says:

    The word SPATZLES is a valid word, yet Words With Friends keeps saying it is not a valid word and won’t let me play it! Please fix this!

  46. Lainie* says:

    Niggle is surely an acceptable word. It means to worry!

  47. JPS says:

    Website seem broken…
    No right hand side menu except
    error message under Registraion:
    Couldn’t execute SELECT * FROM networdswithfriends.M2014_05

  48. Susan says:

    Litote is a rhetorical device. How is it not a valid word?

  49. Dan says:

    The word “storer” is a valid dictionary word. Something or someone that stores, e.g. a storer of energy or food.

  50. Zen says:

    The spanish words huevo (egg) and queso (cheese) are not accepted.

    • Linda Fraser says:

      Pluto also not accepted, isn’t this a planet? I can’t believe the logic of words with friends!!
