    Jedi is a cool word but it would be considered a proper noun that should be capitalized and those are not valid.
    OK is also more of an abbreviation that is capitalized when used correctly. The spelling is okay.
    que is possibly an alternate spelling of cue. For those type of judgement calls we look to the scrabble dictionary. If they add it then we would also.

    We are always open to adding words to the word list. If you have a word you’d like added and can send us a link or two showing a non-capitalized definition from a well known dictionary or other word game source we will usually put it on the list. Same applies if you see a word you do not think should be in..see if its out in any of the dictionaries. We use the ENABLE2k word list used by many word games. However it does not have definitions. We currently get those from Wordnik which does not have as many words that are found in the ENABLE2K list.

    We try to closely match the Merriam-Webster’s Scrabble dictionary (link to it is below).

    The short answer is if you see a valid word played that is not found in the Websters Official Scrabble dictionary we will remove the word and we will give you 3,000 coins for finding it. You just need to verify it is not in the Scrabble list before sending it in.

    This is the link for Scrabble’s official list (They have access to an official Merriam-Websters Scrabble dictionary for definitions):

    We started with a standard word list for validation called ENABLE2k that is often used for word games and word game tournaments. People and Chumbots use the exact same list..except some of the easier Chumbots can’t use parts of the list. It’s used by quite a few games and you can search google on it if interested. However it only has words and not…

    We use the ENABLE2K word list for validation which is a public domain word list used by many word games. (you can find it in a search) Games like Scrabble have their own list and their own definitions but because of copyright issues it is not available for public use. Unfortunately the ENABLE2k list does not include definitions. We currently use another service (wordnik.com) to look up definitions and it does not have definitions for all of the ENABLE2K words. We do hope to compile our own definitions for undefined words but that task is behind a lot of others at the moment. Thanks for playing!
