Episode 1519 was broadcast on 29 March 1994, and was the fourth quarter-final of Series 27.

Robin Benoy played Alan Ferguson, with Robin Benoy winning 49 – 38. The Dictionary Corner guest was Rosalind Ayres, and the lexicographer was Richard Samson.

NOTE: Alan's declaration of GIBLET in Round 6 should've been disallowed, as it is only in the dictionary in the plural form of GIBLETS, therefore the final score should have been 54 – 32.
