Can Scrabble words be two letters long?

This question was answered on 4 Nov 2023 by Stephen Lunt


Two-letter words are valid in Scrabble. Two letters is the shortest a Scrabble word can be in length. Some examples include low-scoring words such as “Re” and “Ai” to obscure higher-scoring words such as “Qi” and “Za.”

Fun fact: two-letter words are among the most searched-for words online and in Scrabble word finders. Across our site “Qi” remains the most searched-for term by players of the game.
