colleague of mine got 'waqf' recently. but my favourite has to be
'qur'an', as it has a 'qu' in it, but doesn't pronounce it /kw/. i
suppose it's lot allowed because of the apostrophe tho.

There's an official word-list made by the makers of Scrabble, but I
don't know that it's complete. It looked rather thin. (There may be a
more complete version as well, of course.) If there is another
dictionary, I imagine the OED wouldn't be it because of the amount of
dialectal and archaic words it has.
