Episode 5505 was broadcast on 13 June 2012, as part of Series 66.

Jonathan Rawlinson played Stewart Calver, with Jonathan Rawlinson winning 120 – 31. The Dictionary Corner guest was Saira Khan, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: In Round 12, Dictionary Corner offered the word aliyahs as a seven. The dictionary clearly states that the plural of ALIYAH is ALIYOTH, so aliyahs has been omitted here.
