Bit confused (sorry, me again) about the use of Merriam-Webster for Scrabble - I've never heard this and can't find any reference to it online. The rules as far as I'm aware say you just agree on a dictionary at the start of the game, and in tournament play they use the Collins word list, or in the USA another one called TWL I think.
