The 101 2-letter words


Do you love Scrabble? I love this game... (ah, it had been a long time since i played!). Memorizing 2-letter words are very helpful because you can connect another word from it and that would mean another score. When i learnt about these 2-letter words, i ask, "are some of these really words?" And yes, they are!!!!!

Here are the 101 2-letter words


AAs ABs ADs AE AGs AHs AIs ALs AM AN
ARs ASs AT AW AX AYs BAs BEs BIs BOs
BYs DE DOs EDs EFs EH ELs EMs ANs ERs
ESs ET EX FAs FEs GOs HAs HEs HIs HM
HO IDs IFs INs IS ITs JO KAs KIs LAs
LIs LO MAs ME MIs MM MOs MUs MY NA
NE NOs NUs ODs OEs OF OHs OI OMs ONs
OPs ORs OS OW OX OY PAs PEs PIs QIs
REs SH SIs SOs TAs TIs TO UH UM UNs
UPs US UTs WE WOs XIs XU YA YEs YO ZAs

What is the secret in winning? Memorize all these words (which i know so many are "weird"). Take a pencil and paper and try to write out the 101 words! Keep doing it till you can. "Guaranteed" to add an average of 50 points to your game!
And don't ever forget which ones can be added with "s".

Trivia:
What do these 2-letter words have in common?: AH, AL, AS, BA, BO, BY, IN, IS, IT, LA, MA, MI, MU, NA, NE

Err, but I thought two-letter words are not allowed in scrabble. Or I may be wrong. Not sure though, I haven't played that game in a long time already.

i also like scrabble! to your question, my guess is that they are abbreviations of some of the states in the US... anyway, i tagged you (to-do list tag)... just do it when you have the time... there's no rush...

enjoy the week!
