K and Z - Feb 4

Do K and Z go together? You wouldn't have thought so, but there are plenty of words with 5 letters or less that have both letters. They can be very lucrative. I scored 69 recently, and it wasn't even the Z that was on a premium square.


ZEK - An inmate of a labour camp in the former USSR


KAZI - Lavatory. Also KHAZI and KARZY


KUZU - Thickening agent used in a macrobiotic diet


ZACK - Old Australian word for a sixpence before decimal currency


ZERK - Fitting on a bearing or axle for adding a lubricant


ZONK - To exhaust


ZOUK - Style of Caribbean dance music


AZUKI - Japanese bean. Also ADUKI and ADZUKI


KANZU - Long white garment worn in parts of Africa


KAZOO - Toy musical instrument. Also called GAZOO or GAZOOKA


KLUTZ - Clumsy person. Takes a Y hook for KLUTZY


KRANZ - Crown of rock on a mountaintop. Also KRANTZ


KUDZU - Ornamental plant in China and Japan


MUZAK - Piped background music. Takes a Y hook for MUZAKY


OZEKI - Champion sumo wrestler


ZAKAT - Islamic tax payable on certain types of property


ZINKE - An old German wind instrument


ZINKY - Of or like zinc. Also ZINCY and ZINCKY


That last one is a bit strange, because zink is not a word


Happy Scrabbling
