Welsh also has some notably long words, especially place names.

now that is a Scrabble word

BTW, place names are legal

" Proper nouns come into play in Scrabble rule change

Mattel said the use of names will add a "new dimension" to Scrabble
The rules of word game Scrabble are being changed for the first time in its history to allow the use of proper nouns, games company Mattel has said.
Place names, people's names and company names or brands will now count. "

Agreed Robert, that " old " rule about proper nouns forced us to think ( a bit anyway ) before putting a word down. Disputing words is half the fun of scrabble IMO.

Went there the other day. One of my discoveries, from driving around a carpark, was that "allan" means "exit".


So what were all those boys' parents thinking when they named their son "Allan"?

It's a DPR thread linking a Pentaxrumours article which refers to a second thread on DPR that referred to a third, now deleted DPR thread.

Solid evidence


You must be a scholar, doing all that citation tracing.

Notice the hopeful branding of the train company: "Arriva". They run buses too. Fancy branding on the notion that they arrive - unless that reflects something of the standard of the rest of the services.


Confucius had something to say about that: one of his followers asked: "Master: what I the first thing you would do if you became emperor?" To which he answered: "Name things properly"
