Non-US Dictionary

The game is good, but for myself as an Englishman it is very frustrating. The dictionary used is very different from that used here in England - this is especially true when it comes to short words but there are many colloquialisms that we would normally use that do not appear in the M-W dictionary. And someone seems to have made an arbitrary decision to disallow words that might by some be considered rude ('shat' is an example that was rejected today that I would certainly not consider in the slightest obscene). So, my request is to be able to select the dictionary so we are not restricted to one country's version of English.
