Episode 1098 was broadcast on 11 February 1991, as part of Series 21.

Nick Saloman played Jean Davison, with Nick Saloman winning 62 – 40. The Dictionary Corner guest was Simon Williams, and the lexicographer was Alexandra Clayton.

NOTE: Nick's declaration of TOWELING in round 6 should have been allowed as American spellings of words were still allowed back in those days, so the final score should have been 70 – 33.
