Why is oakleaf not a word ? the leaf of an oak certainly exists ! Come watch my yard next month, you can rake them up !

Level 49
Nov 1, 2022
Oakleaf is not a word in the official Scrabble dictionary, and even if it was, it doesn't mean the leaf of an oak try. That is two words, typed out as "oak leaf". Saying that the leaf of an oak is "oakleaf" would be like saying "birchleaf" or "spruceleaf" are words

Can we not use this word in the quiz?

It's a slur against disabled people and is very offensive (in the UK at least). It's a harsher word than c*nt but less offensive than the n-word so feels like it's not great.

+2
Level 49
Nov 1, 2022
In the US it's most definitely not a slur and is just used to describe someone who is highly energetic. I could see how it could be used in a derogatory meaning, but this quiz is based on the Scrabble dictionary, and I highly doubt Hasbro would and could remove every word with any sort of offensive meaning. Even a word like "r*tard" is allowed in Scrabble since it has a meaning beyond that of being offensive

I swear, literally 90% of these comments are people complaining that their local slang word or something isn't in the Scrabble dictionary. Since clearly people don't care to search it up themselves, here's the official Hasbro Scrabble dictionary website: https://scrabble.hasbro.com/en-us/tools
