About the word WO

Wo is a versatile word that has many meanings. It is commonly used as a shortened version of the word “whoa,” but is also defined as meaning great sadness or distress. Additionally, “WO” is a common abbreviation for terms such as “War Office” and “Warrant Officer”.

Wo’s short length makes it a nifty Scrabble word that can slot on the board in often difficult-to-play places. Traditionally, words containing a “W” can be troublesome to play, so this two-letter word makes the job easier.

Wo is highly extendible to make words such as “Two”, “Woo”, and “Woe” or longer variations like “Swoon” and “Woopie.”

Definitions of WO

  • (interjection) A falconer's call to a hawk.
  • (interjection) A call to cause a horse to slow down or stop; whoa.
  • (noun) Great sadness or distress; a misfortune causing such sadness.
  • (noun) Calamity, trouble.
