SI

SI is valid to play in Scrabble for 2 points

About the word SI

Si is defined as a syllable used in solfège to represent the seventh note of a major scale, stemming from the word “Ti”. An alternative meaning for Si is the chemical element silicon which “Si” represents on the periodic table.

Si is seen as a popular word in Scrabble due to its prevalent use in the Spanish language where it more simply means “yes.”

Players looking to get a bit more from this letter combination could try for the words “Six” for 10 points, “Sik” for 7, or “Sizy” for a more adventurous 16.

  • (noun) A syllable used in solfège to represent the seventh note of a major scale.

DI

DI is valid to play in Scrabble for 3 points

About the word DI

Di is good to play if you are following the Scrabble Collins word list. However, those within the US and Canada should be cautious about using “Di” as it’s not valid according to the US/Canadian tournament dictionary.

Di is defined as a prefix used to denote “two”, “double”, or “twice” that’s derived from Greek and Latin origins. An alternative use of di is to denote the sound or noise of a tune.

Di by itself is only worth 3 points and therefore isn’t a high-scoring word. Players could consider possible extensions such as “Div” and “Dif” for 7 points or “Dim” and “Dip” for 6 points.

GI

GI is valid to play in Scrabble for 3 points

About the word GI

A Gi, also known as a Keikogi, is a specialised type of clothing typically worn in martial arts. It is designed to provide mobility and comfort during training or competition while also serving as a symbol of respect for the discipline. The Gi is typically made of durable, lightweight fabric, and consists of a jacket and pants that are tied together with a belt.

Some of my favourite extensions of this word include “Gilt,” “Agile,” and “Legit.” Due to the word’s low score, it may be best to hold onto the G and I tiles until you can make a longer word. For example, with an extra N tile, you can unlock many words ending in “-ING.”

Definitions of GI

  • (noun) A martial arts uniform.

Words Containing GI

  • gie 4
  • gin 4
  • gio 4
  • gis 4
  • git 4
  • gid 5

TI

TI is valid to play in Scrabble for 2 points

About the word TI

“Ti” has multiple meanings and definitions from a syllable used to denote the seventh note of a major scale in music to the symbol used to represent the element titanium.

Although not worth many points when played alone, Ti has the advantage of being highly expandable to create new words. Some of my favourites include “Tip”, “Tivy”, and “Tizz” for 12 points if you are lucky enough to have a spare “Z.” With thousands of options available, you are bound to be able to play off Ti in some manner.

Definitions of TI

  • (noun) A syllable used in solfège to represent the seventh note of a major scale.
  • (noun) The good luck plant, Cordyline fruticosa, an evergreen shrub.

Words Containing TI

  • tie 3
  • til 3
