GWG words in other languages
  • TheTible ★ at 2003-05-29

    Has happened to anyone of you to find more words in your mother language than in english?

    If yes, is possible to see GWG in other languages of large circulation? Eg: Italiano, Deutch, Française, Espagnol, etc…

    Or in base of country players number on Little Golem.

    Eg: Dutch, Norway, Romania, Hungary…

    Should we make a referendum?

    I would vote for Czech.

    But I know that there is no free Czech Scrabble (or similar) dictionary.

    Hi, Tiberiu,

    Has happened to anyone of you to find more words in your mother language than in english?<

    Yes, it happens to me–in English too.

    There are plenty of “real words” used in everyday English that are not on the list. zagareet, beledi, zil

    (alternate spelling of zill), doumbek, to name just a few.

    Of course for all of you talented bi-lingual folks, it must be frustrating to see words in the letters that you cannot use. My hat is off to all of you…

    l'm surprised that even common latin words like orbi don't pass.

    I would like dutch, but there is one problem. GWG uses a wordlist to check words… For each language people should seek a comparable (e.g. scrabble) word list, to make it possible for the computer to check words.

    I don't know if the 'Green book' which is the standard dutch word list is available online…
