Release 101 of the WHAT program was recently made. This release
features the new Collins lexicon CSW2019, and the support files for
working with that lexicon. ALL words in that lexicon have
definitions in WHAT, not limited to up to 8-letter base words only.
CSW2019 has a new 2-letter word which is not in NWL2018.

The Scrabble player Ron McGill, known as Zax, who often posts to CGP,
recently posted about a Scrabble gravestone in the Lone Fir Cemetery in
Portland, OR. The deceased person was Paul Lind, whom I could
not find mentioned on cross-tables.com
See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66DIK9qwcVE

AXMAN has two different one-letter front hooks.
CSW2019 is the same as NWL2018.

PLANET + O     yields one  NWL2018 seven, and CSW2019 is the same.
LAY + BOOK + ? yields one  NWL2018 eight, and CSW2019 is the same.
