Is “Di” a Scrabble Word?

Yes Di is valid in Scrabble for 3 points

Di is valid within the UK-based and globally accepted Scrabble Collins word list. However, those within the US and Canada should be cautious about using "Di" as it's not valid according to the US/Canadian tournament dictionary.

Di is defined as a prefix used to denote "two", "double", or "twice" that's derived from Greek and Latin origins. An alternative use of di is to denote the sound or noise of a tune.

Di by itself is only worth 3 points and therefore isn't a high-scoring word. Players could consider possible extensions such as "Div" and "Dif" for 7 points or "Dim" and "Dip" for 6 points.
