CH

CH is valid to play in Scrabble for 7 points

About the word CH

“Ch” is in fact the only acceptable 2-letter “C” word that can be used in Scrabble. This is only applicable if using the Collins Scrabble Words dictionary (used in the UK and throughout the world). However, it is still unfortunately invalid in the US and Canadian dictionaries.

The word’s meaning is that of a dialect form of I. It is further used as an abbreviation for chain (a unit of measurement) and for the word chapter (such as a book chapter).

Definitions of CH

  • (noun) A series of interconnected rings or links usually made of metal.
  • (noun) A series of interconnected things.
  • (noun) The physical confine of a river or slough, consisting of a bed and banks.
  • (noun) The natural or man-made deeper course through a reef, bar, bay, or any shallow body of water.
  • (noun) The wale of a sailing ship which projects beyond the gunwale and to which the shrouds attach via the chains. One of the flat ledges of heavy plank bolted edgewise to the outside of a vessel, to increase the spread of the shrouds and carry them clear of the bulwarks.

CO

CO is invalid to play in Scrabble

About the word CO

Unfortunately, the word “co” is not allowed to be played in Scrabble games as it does not appear in the game dictionary. Often a highly debated over word, but “co” is not allowed to be played as it is generally considered an abbreviation that the Scrabble rules do not permit.

In the English language, the abbreviation “CO” has multiple meanings and definitions. For example, the state of Colorado within the United States, the chemical symbol for cobalt, and the shorthand for carbon monoxide gas.

If you are looking for a two-letter word utilizing the “C” letter tile for Scrabble, the only option available for you to use in your game is the word “Ch.”

Some notable words that contain the letters “C” and “O” include: “Cox” for 12 points, “Coz” for 14 points, and “Coy” for 8 points.

CI

CI is invalid to play in Scrabble

About the word CI

“Ci” has two definitions in the dictionary. Firstly, as a Roman numeral the letters CI represent the number 101. Secondly, Ci represents the Curie unit, a unit of measurement for radioactivity.

Unluckily for Scrabble players, two-letter words with a C are extremely rare as the only valid option is “Ch” for 7 points. If you currently have a “C” and “I” on your tile rack, “Cid”, “Cis”, “Cig”, and “Cit” are acceptable three-letter options to play.
