The School SCRABBLE Word List (2018 edition), SSWL2018, was edited by the NASPA Dictionary Committee in 2018, and incorporates changes made to the corresponding OTCWL2018 lexicon. Like its predecessors, it consists of those words that are acceptable in the regular Official Tournament and Club Word List (OTCWL) that are considered appropriate for school use.
