Re(8): Non-French speaker wins French Scrabble Championship

I think there's another level of impressiveness in being able to compartmentalise dictionaries. At least two expert Countdown players have refused to return to Champion of Champions (irritating the competition a bit) because they switched from the Countdown word list to the Scrabble one, and didn't want to have to remember two overlapping dictionaries, so didn't feel they could compete effectively.

And a further level of impressiveness in being able to learn words that can't necessarily be pronounced or inflected naturally. Winning Scrabble using a different alphabet would be even more impressive, of course.
