The point values for the various letters are as follows:

Letter | Points | Letter | Points | |

A | 1 | N | 1 | |

B | 3 | O | 1 | |

C | 3 | P | 3 | |

D | 2 | Qu | 2 | |

E | 1 | R | 1 | |

F | 4 | S | 1 | |

G | 2 | T | 1 | |

H | 4 | U | 1 | |

I | 1 | V | 4 | |

J | 7 | W | 4 | |

K | 5 | X | 7 | |

L | 1 | Y | 4 | |

M | 3 | Z | 9 |

Note that if a letter tile has a multiplier bonus (e.g., '2X' or '3X') then the value of that letter will be 1 rather than the value listed in the table. For example, you can see in the table that the letter P is usually worth 3 points and the letters I and E are usually worth 1 point each; thus the word "PIE" is usually worth 3+1+1 = 5 points. However, if the P is on a 3X tile then the P is only worth one point and the word "PIE" is worth 3 x (1+1+1) = 9 points.

Note also that if a letter tile has +10 bonus, then the value of the letter is not increased by 10; it simply is 10. For example, the letter P is usually worth 3 points. However, if the P is on a +10 tile then the P is worth 10 points (not 3+10 = 13 points as you might possibly expect).
