Scrabble players could soon be turning to Norfolk words like tizzick, pishamire and swidge, to beat their opposite number.

If you are a word lover, you welcome any initiative that celebrates every corner of the language."
Scrabble has said that it's keen to include endangered as well as emerging words. Along with the Norfolk words the term 'arrad' from Lincolnshire, which means being tired, is also being considered. When it comes to the Norfolk terms tizzick means cough, pishamire means ant, and swidge is a term for a small puzzle.
The terms will be officially allowed on the board when they're included in the next edition of the Collins Scrabble Dictionary.
