ch and pHEdit

I have dewikified "ch" and capitalised the "h" of "pH". I have added comments to the article explaining why I have done this. — Paul G 18:25, 19 Nov 2004 (UTC)


This list is confusing; it mixes the North American and International versions into the same list. They should be listed seperately and notated in the same entry. As it stands, this list is not useful to anyone wanting to play by the official dictionaries. The new words should be included in the list, not just the notes.

Edit: ok, I guess you could probably wait until they officially take effect to add them to the list, although the dictionary itself is already in stores.

Edit: To be useful, you need the list twice; ordered alphabetically by first letter, and ordered again by last letter.


Wikipedia has an article on:

I assume they don't mean the Mandarin definition that we have...right? --Connel MacKenzie 06:40, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Actually I think the English word comes from Mandarin definition #3: : air, gas, breath, oxygen, vitality, function. Kappa 06:44, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
Ahhh, thank you. Hmmm. I always thought that was spelled chi. <shrug>. --Connel MacKenzie 06:54, 25 January 2007 (UTC) Gah! It is spelled ch'i. Weird. --Connel MacKenzie 06:55, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
Like many Chinese romanisations, there's quite a bit of variance. Tooironic 01:34, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
Specifically, ch‘i was the Wade-Giles romanization of what pinyin turns into qi. — LlywelynII 05:26, 13 May 2018 (UTC)




Do we really need this? I played Scrabble competitions for a couple of years and Scrabble is about as far away from a dictionary as you can get whilst being related to words. Also the rant about 'ch' is in appropriate. I'd prefer to delete it, but I dunno who, if anyone would agree. Mglovesfun (talk) 18:00, 29 June 2010 (UTC)

I agree that, as long as the game's authorities all recognize it, the rant is inappropriate here; at most, it belongs as a usage note at its entry. — LlywelynII 05:28, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
Fixt. — LlywelynII 05:56, 13 May 2018 (UTC)


Several words are listed as excluded from US play but still included on the list of acceptable words. Someone should check the current standards and update the article. — LlywelynII 05:56, 13 May 2018 (UTC)


Also, is the first list actually international? or just limited to Britain? — LlywelynII 05:57, 13 May 2018 (UTC)
