Is it possible to see the dictionary used by Words With Friends? Occasionally the game creator includes dictionary updates with updates to the game itself, and it would be nice to know what words have been added or removed.

Words With Friends uses the Enhanced North American Benchmark Lexicon (ENABLE), with a few custom additions such as 'Zen' and 'Qi'. The base word list can be found here, but I don't have a source for any of the custom additions at this time.



There are a number of Words with Friends Help site, where they listed all the acceptable and recognized words in Words with Friends. You can also find the official game rules in an article I wrote.
