I need hard to spell words from Star Wars.
April 12, 2012 9:20 PM   Subscribe

I'm organizing a Star Wars themed spelling bee. I need as many hard to spell Star Wars words as possible. They can be nouns, etc. It's a fun event, and we are not following strict rules about it. Already have "Kashyyyk" and "Sarlaac" and "wookiee".

Denis Lawson, if you want to get meta about it.

Darth Sidious (I would have totally missed this one; that 'o' in there is surprising).

Darth Krayt
Weequay
Kneesaa a Jari Kintaka
Boba Fett
C-3PO


"Midi-chlorians"

Whatever those are they have nothing to do with Star Wars

For fun, start the first round with droids: C-3PO, R2-D2, IG-88.

"Darth Plagueis" and "Mace Windu" are the ones that always look like typos to me, even when they're spelled right.

Apparently in the Extended Universe there's a Luuke Skywalker — yeah, that's two u's — and he definitely wins any hard-to-spell contest hands down, but unless you're working with some serious nerds you probably shouldn't go there.

I had to use the autocomplete on wookieepedia's search box to even get the article!

Coruscant - somewhat deceptive by sound.
Yuuzhan Vong and Yuuzhan'tar

I'd start by going through the SWTOR server list for start! Lots of good names and planets and creatures that are hard to spell there. For instance, I play on "Vornskr," which is a creature name.

I just want to say this is nothing short of a hilarious idea. Good on you!

If you include cast like Denis Lawson, there's also Shelagh Fraser (Aunt Beru), for starters. Maybe behind the scenes people too, like Ralph McQuarrie?

And I dunno about "Leah," but I see "Annakin" all the damn time.
