ZI

ZI is invalid to play in Scrabble

About the word ZI

ZI is not a legal Scrabble word that appears in any of the game’s dictionaries. ZI’s definition and meaning is an abbreviation for the zone of the interior - part of a theatre of war not included in the theatre of operations.

If you currently have the letters tiles Z and I, do not fear as there are plenty of alternative words you could play. Some short three-letter Z words include ZIN, ZIG, ZIT, and ZIP. Alternatively, ZA, ZO, and ZE are all excellent two-letter words that use the Z tile.

ZI Points Value

ZI scored at the face value of its letter tiles would score 11 points. However, as it's invalid if your opponent challenges it you risk forfeiting a turn and hence would instead score 0 points.

OZ is invalid to play in Scrabble

About the word OZ

Oz is not an acceptable word to play in Scrabble. The term “oz” is used as an abbreviation for an ounce, a unit of measurement equivalent to the weight 28.3495 grams.

Most abbreviations, unless they form another word by themselves, are disallowed by the official Scrabble game dictionaries. Because of this, we’d discourage players from using “oz” in their gameplay as it could be challenged by your opponent and lose you valuable points.
