: : Now, the word "suds" as we all know is a perfectly nice and acceptable plural noun - so my question is simply this. Is the singular form - sud - a real word? It's apparently not permissible in a game of Scrabble.

: : "She was washing her unmentionables in the sink so vigorously that a stray sud splashed up and onto her blouse."

There is an easy answer - if the word is in "Official Scrabble Words" it's in - if it's not it's out. Chambers 20th Century is the dictionary it is based on, I recall.
