Help > What words are allowed?

You can't use: You can use:

Chihuahua accepts a lot of extremely rare words, but you may find an obscure word in a very large dictionary that is not permitted in the puzzle. We don't aim to include every archaic or technical word that is listed in the multi-volume unabridged dictionaries. If you think a word ought to be allowed, send in a suggestion.

WARNING: by default, there is no expurgation of words that might be considered offensive by some players. However, you can make your own puzzles under the Your Puzzles tab, where there is an option to exclude many such words.
