Quirky Q

Q brings us lots of quirky, queer and questionable words.  For the Scrabble lovers among us, the challenge is to find words where Q doesn’t have to be followed by its soulmate U.

So, here a few to help you out with your next game… (courtesy of the OED)

  • Qi – a variant spelling of chi, the Chinese word for life force
  • Qibla – the direction of the Kaaba to which Muslims turn at prayer
  • Qigong – a Chinese system of physical exercises and breathing control related to tai chi
  • Qintar – a monetary unit of Albania

Yes, I know you will find a few more in the Scrabble bible, but I challenge you to find out the meaning before you lay those precious letters down on the board.

Good luck!
