No, instead it does involve the addition of a new playable word.

Are you ready?

OK.

As of today, the letters O and K are acceptable as a combined word, when it was previously only allowed to be spelled out "OKAY".

It is one of a series of new additions made this week by Merriam-Webster for the official Scrabble dictionary.

Some of the other additions are also expanding the horizons of everyone's lettered tile game: bizjet, arancini, macaron, yowza, sriracha, aquafaba, beatdown, zomboid, twerk, sheeple, wayback, bokeh, botnet, emoji, facepalm, frowny, hivemind, puggle, nubber... and ew.

Yep. Ew is now officially a playable word on Scrabble.

Let it never be said that Scrabble doesn't reflect the language!
