15 Two-Letter Scrabble Words

scrabble

The toughest part of Scrabble is when you are down to your last two or three tiles and you have to figure out a way to use them so you don’t have to end up deducting points at the end of the game. The worst part is when your last tiles are odd letters that happen to also be worth a lot of points, like K, Q or X. How are you going to make a short word with those tiles?

Being a scrabble geek, I have memorized several two-letter scrabble words that you most likely do not use in everyday language, but are still recognized as words in the official Scrabble dictionary.
