Change in dictionary:

HarperCollins publishers has published the Collins Scrabble® Words 2019 (CSW19) on 2 May 2019.

World English-Language Scrabble Players Association (WESPA) has recommended that the dictionary be used on all WESPA-rated events with effective from 1 July 2019. HKSPA, as the national association representing Hong Kong and as a member association of WESPA, has decided to follow WESPA in adopting CSW19 as the official tournament word list for tournaments rated or recognised by HKSPA starting from 1 July 2019. CSW19 will supersede the use of CSW15 dictionary. Please refer to the table above for the dictionary used in a particular competition.
