Definition, please? I don't find this listed in any dictionary as an English word; I believe the English spelling of that Greek character is "san". At any rate, "tsan" isn't in the English dictionaries so may not be an eligible word.

I've searched through numerous regular, Scrabble, and crossword dictionaries and don't find "tsan" as a legitimate English word (rule #4). Assuming this will hold up, "tsar" is the last word in play so I move...
tsar -> osar

If "tsan" is accepted as eligible, then my move is...
tsan -> than

TSAN (The SysOps Association Network) was an underground network of bulletin board systems that shared an interest in phreaking, hacking, and cracking. The network was especially active in the late 1980s, when it linked the message and file boards of several hundred bulletin board systems via Fidonet.

It's not an English word. Instead an acronym, to the best of my knowledge.

As I connot find a definition of tsan, osar is the word in play.

I cannot find a legal move for Osar.

Has tech angel won?

I think so.

No proper names and no acronyms -- essentially, no words unfit for Scrabble (rule #5).

It appears that we do indeed have a winner. It seems a bit anti-climactic, though... we should be giving a prize or sticking a crown on her head or something.

At any rate, congratulations Tech Angel

Words are added to the english lexicon every year. Perhaps this thread will start up again a few years from now after a new playable word is created and universally adknowledged.

Ok, it is a long shot but it could happen, or it could "osat" as I have been saying for the last day. [Wink]
