# <span class=q> What are all these official word lists? </span><br /> Any group of players can agree to use a particular word list or dictionary in their games. In officially sanctioned competitive play though, we all use one of a few official word lists designed for use with our game. Unlike regular dictionaries, for example, official word lists list all valid inflections for all listed words. Within NASPA's territory of the United States and Canada, the following word lists are officially recognized: [[OSPD]] for school play, [[OTCWL]] for regular competitive play, and [[CSW]] for international play.
