    Abstract

    A graph G = (V,E) is word-representable if there exists a word w over the alphabet V such that letters x and y alternate in w if and only if (x,y) is an edge in E . A recent elegant result of Akrobotu et al. [1] states that a triangulation of any convex polyomino is word-representable if and only if it is 3-colourable. In this paper, we generalize a particular case of this result by showing that the result of Akrobotu et al. [1] is true even if we allow a domino tile, instead of having just 1x1 tiles on a rectangular polyomino.
