I am a member of a club called the London Scrabble League. The club meets once a fortnight on a regular basis, and all members are welcome at these meetings. Between regular meetings, members often get together in each other's homes in groups of two, four or six to play a few games of Scrabble. our dictionary of authority is Chambers Twentieth Century Dictionary. We have various house rules about which words are and are not allowable. All nouns are assumed to be pluralizable unless otherwise indicated; all verb forms ending in -S, -ED, and -ING are allowed unless otherwise indicated. Comparative and superlative adjectives are allowed if the base adjective or adverb (technically known as a "positive") is one syllable long or if they sound acceptable.
