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.
