    hello mister piyush dadriwala u r failed about those two words with vowels first correct those words

  5. Hutesh Sandhu September 1, 2013 at 8:06 am #

    Excuse me! Two of the 34 words are with vowels which are the 1st word Ay and ninths word gyve . In both these words a and e are present so these words are not constant. So, I think that you have only 32 words left which are which vowels and I think so that there also semi-constants.

  6. Anonymous September 1, 2013 at 7:57 am #

    Excuse me! Out of these 34words the first word Ay and ninth word gyve have vowels.

Overprotective or authoritarian parents put children at risk for problematic behavior later in life.

  27. Ami Raj January 22, 2012 at 11:45 pm #

    Hi all
    The longest word is TWYNDYLLYNGS

    Twyndyllyngs is the longest word in English that doesn’t contain one of the five vowels (AEIOU). It comes from Welsh and is obviously rare, but it does appear in the Oxford English Dictionary.

    It turns out that “twyndyllyng” (singular) is a 15th century spelling of the word “twinling,” which means, in modern English, “twin.”

    In this case repeating what others is saying is probably stupid, so here is a full explination. In certain words Y is a vowel, in this case all these words Y is a vowel. When there are no other vowels in the word or in the sylable that the Y is in then Y is to stand in and be a vowel. There are a few words that do not have vowels in them at all and they may not be considered words to some but these are the only ones out there, here you go:
    psst
    shh
    sh
    hm
    hmm
    brr
    brrr
    zzzz
    tsk
    tsks

    psst

    prr

    crwth- like a violin
    crwths
    cwm- deep hollow within a mountain
    cwms
    pwn- meaning own
    nth – the mathematical term
    mhm
    mm
    grr
    vlk- wolf
    krk- neck

    Um. 1. The first one has an A. 2. Most of them have Y’s. That’s a vowel. ALL OF THOSE HAVE VOWELS. NONE OF THESE ARE WORDS WITHOUT VOWELS. One has an E. I mean, seriously?

    hey, i saw ur post. don’t be so pessimistic ’bout these things. at least someone did a good job findind all those words. i kinda like how you gave a shot at that, but can you find at least ONE word without a vowel letter. this is a challenge cos u sound like someone who likes confrntation.

  37. SUPERGENIUS November 26, 2011 at 12:19 pm #

  67. rob December 24, 2010 at 6:49 pm #

    On the list there are two words that have vowels in them for sure. Ay has an A. Clearly has a vowel and also gyve. This word has an E at the end also a vowel. I really trust the person who made this list!

  68. barry December 23, 2010 at 2:04 am #

    hmm, pst!, shh!, tsk!, and zzz

  69. MK December 13, 2010 at 11:46 am #

    The vowels in the English language are: A, E, I, O, U and sometimes Y as we all learned and had to memorize when we were in grammar school. Whenever Y has the sound of a vowel, such as in CRY, it is considered a vowel and not a consonant.

    Is there an adjective (or even a collective noun to describe the set of devowelled words) which describes words which have no vowels?

  77. Anon November 10, 2010 at 8:07 pm #

    Also, crwth rhymes with truth, cwm rhymes with boom, and nth rhymes with tenth, for pronunciation.

  78. Anon November 10, 2010 at 8:04 pm #

    Crwth, cwm, and nth are all real English words that do not contain A, E, I, O, U, or Y. W acts as the vowel in crwth and cwm, and as for nth, I’m not so sure… maybe N is the vowel?

    But I’m POSITIVE those are all real words, and I’m pretty sure those are the only ones. But maybe there are others?

  79. claire November 9, 2010 at 11:25 pm #

    crwth is a word
    you are 10 please shut the fuck up until you know what your talking about.

    No one is perfect in this universe..everything have some their own faults…some of them felt that they are extra features..while some of them felt they are the perfect..while some of them felt wrong but addicted to those… English is also same thing..we have to feel this words without vowels are extra feature to this..and we are not supposed to blame any of our old teachers

  93. anibal October 25, 2010 at 1:03 pm #

    in the english languagh the letter known as Y it’s sometimes considered a vowel

  94. Jonnyboy October 16, 2010 at 9:21 am #

    I’m very sorry but since my primary school teacher told me there are no words in the English language without vowels I have been torturing myself to prove her wrong. There are quite a few and everybody knows there are only 5 of them AEIOU. Not Y and not W just five (5). I am 41 years old now!

    so yes some one this list wouldnt be considered words with no vowels but some are most certainly words withought vowels

    Actually, according to english language, if the letter “Y” is at the end of a word, the “Y” is concidered a vowel, wich leaves out many of those words.

    If we arguing about the technicality, then I think it’s suffice to say that it doesn’t include any of the letters a, e, i, o, u. y that can be vowels.

    PIYUSHDADRIWALA, you are an idiot, unfortunately.

    All of these words have vowels in them: they all have “Y”! As we all have learned in grade school, all words have at least one vowel, also the letter “y” is considered as well. We are talking about English, of course, or else I could name many words in other languages without “vowels”.

    We are not talking about scientific terms as well. So, “nth” doesn’t count as it is actually just an abbreviation for a object’s position in a defined ordering.

    I can’t believe that this crap is in a “science blog”! The blog post makes me want to point and laugh…

    all words have vowels, which is why in grad school we were taught the aeiou and sometimes y. now that we are much older, we learn words that dont have a written vowel and learn that W substitutes a vowel. As for nth, havent heard it but there is always exceptions with everything. so if your word doesnt have the traditional 5 vowels in it, look for a y or w because they step in and take the place. read up on grammar rules.

    Only words in the English disctionary count, not made up words for musical instruments. The ONLY word that has no Vowels (including the Y) is Shrth, Shrth is dated back to the Battle of Marston Moor April 1664.

    It was first used after arriving at the moor on July 2, 1644, Rupert allowed himself to be convinced by his commanders that it was too late in the day to begin fighting. Thus, Rupert allowed his soldiers to break for supper. Shortly after 7:00 PM, however, a large shrth of thunder, accompanied by pouring rain, helped to announce the arrival of The Parliamentarians. The biggest battle ever fought in Britain had begun.

    The Battle of Marston Moor lasted only a few hours. The majority of the Royalists were either killed or taken prisoner. Rupert himself had to hide in a field to avoid capture. The Parliamentarians only lost 300 troops.

    Rupert managed to rally the survivors and retreat to Chester. Here he hoped to rebuild his army. With this march south, the Royalists’ abandoned the north.

    Yes, the letter Y is a vowel or a consonant! In terms of sound, a vowel is ‘a speech sound which is produced by comparatively open configuration of the vocal tract, with vibration of the vocal cords but without audible friction…’, while a consonant is ‘a basic speech sound in which the breath is at least partly obstructed’ (definitions from the New Oxford Dictionary of English, 1998). The letter Y can be used to represent different sounds in different words, and can therefore fit either definition. In myth or hymn it is clearly a vowel, and also in words such as my, where it stands for a diphthong (a combination of two vowel sounds). On the other hand, in a word like beyond there is an obstacle to the breath which can be heard between two vowels, and the same sound begins words like young and yes. (This consonant sound, like that of the letter W, is sometimes called a ‘semivowel’ because it is made in a similar way to a vowel, but functions in contrast to vowels when used in words.) Whether the letter Y is a vowel or a consonant is therefore rather an arbitrary decision. The letter is probably more often used as a vowel, but in this role is often interchangeable with the letter I. However, the consonant sound is not consistently represented in English spelling by any other letter, and perhaps for this reason Y tends traditionally to be counted among the consonants.

    nth /?n?/ Pronunciation Key – Show Spelled Pronunciation[enth] Pronunciation Key – Show IPA Pronunciation
    –adjective 1. being the last in a series of infinitely decreasing or increasing values, amounts, etc.
    2. (of an item in a series of occurrences, planned events, things used, etc., that is thought of as being infinitely large) being the latest, or most recent: This is the nth time I’ve told you to eat slowly.

    Just to give people some clarification, here is both the definition of vowels and consonants, and how the letter Y fits into both. http://www.askoxford.com/asktheexperts/faq/aboutother/lettery?view=uk

    In Summary, they point out that in the majority of cases, when Y is used as a vowel, it is interchangeable with the letter I – as in words like ‘try’ or ‘crypt’ would sound the same if an I was there instead. They also mention that there are no other consonants that give the same sound as a letter ‘y’ in words souch as ‘young’ or ‘Yemen’, and this is the reason that the letter ‘y’ is traditionally considered a consonant.

    Discuss =P

    Some purists might question “nth”s status as a word, but since I believe language is what people speak (not what some self-appointed arbiter of style decrees), I’ll agree that “nth” is a word. It is also true that “nth” isn’t written with a vowel. But the question is whether you want to go with the orthography or the pronunciation.

    If you go with orthography, then all you are saying is that you’ve found a word that isn’t written with a vowel. But I think if you say “nth” outloud to yourself and listen carefully, you’ll see it’s really “enth”.

    It’s been said above, but just to repeat — there are no words in spoken English that don’t have vowels. Maybe there are some foreign borrowings that don’t have vowels, but I doubt there are enough English-speakers who can pronounce those words to count them as English words in their own right.

    “Y” CAN BE SUBSTITUDED AS A VOWEL!! so it doesn’t count :)
    and there is ONE word in the english language that has no vowels including “Y”… and that word is “cwrth” -an ancient Celtic musical instrument with the strings stretched over a rectangular frame, played with a bow.

    yup you can google it… don’t trust google… check a dictionary either the old fashion way or on the internet :D

    Y is a vowel and a constanant. It acts as the one it needs to be.

    It IS a vowel in these cases.

    Every proper word has at least one vowel, otherwise it’s basically just noise.

    according to facebook,the only word without a vowel is
    Crwth…it’s some kind of ancient Celtic instrument.

    and in grade school I was taught vowels like this
    “A,E,I,O,U, and sometimes Y and W.”
    soo,i guess that there are no words that are truly without vowels.

    While it’s totally unrelated to the topic at hand, I’ve read a little bit about Tysabri. While it is true that this is an amazing medication I would be cautious of calling it a miracle drug. It’s new, and it almost wasn’t because of some funky rare lesions that came up in the brains of some people in the clinical trials that left the suferers in a worse state than their M.S. I can understand the appeal of a new treatment for a condition as serious as MS, and it is with this in mind that I remind you that it is important that people understand the risks and decide for themselves whether or not the risks are worth the benefit. of But you know, the manufacturers have a great marketing team, getting out press releases and all, so it must be a miracle drug, just like Vioxx, Bextra….

  273. Anonymous May 6, 2010 at 8:21 pm #

    “Y” acts as a consonant only if it’s placed before a vowel, as in “yes” or “yellow” – this is generally the case in modern English. However, Middle English frequently used “y” as a vowel in exchange for “i” (in words like myn or tyme), and, considering that the words in this list use “y” as such, I’d say that they all contain vowels. At any rate, a 15th century Englishman would agree with me.

  288. Anonymous October 26, 2006 at 4:45 am #

    ‘Y’ is sometimes a vowel, but only if it is by itself in a word, like ‘fry’. Every word has a vowel, unless you’re stupid an are thinking of things like ‘TV’. That’s an abbreveation! So, let’s take ‘Yard’, for instance. Notice that ‘a’ is the main vowel in this, so when there is a main vowel, ‘y’ is not a vowel. ‘Y’ is only used when no other vowel is present.

    Hope I cleared the confusion!

    No, Y becomes a vowel when it acts like a vowel.

    The Y in Yogurt is not a vowel. The Y in Happy is a vowel, even though there is another vowel. How many vowels there are in a word has no effect on whether Y is a vowel.

    I’m not sure please tell me. After all, a 2nd grader would know how to use full stops to prevent a run on sentence.

    Likewise some might even know how to spell foreign or that America is a name and therefore needs a capital letter. Likewise in the context used in your last sentence you should have used you’re.

    Continuing on it would be does not dose and least not lease. I mean does could have been a simple typing error, but e and t aren’t that close for your least mistake.

    So please, in the future before you start calling people retards, take a look in the mirror and get into your mind what a real retard looks like.

  303. Sam7657 May 5, 2010 at 8:59 am #

    Y can be a vowel or consonant.

    In terms of sound, where Y represents long ee sounds, it obviously becomes a vowel, such as Barry, happy, nappy etc. But it’s a consonant when the sound is actually a Y, like in yeti, yonder and you.

    In writing, ‘An yeti’, doesn’t sound right, even though ‘Y’ was originally considered a vowel. This also the case with ‘U’ (when ‘U’ takes the sound of a ‘Y’), whilst ‘an unicorn’ is grammatically correct, it’s a lot easier to say ‘a unicorn’ due to how the rest of the English language works.

    So in writing, it is considered a consonant.

  304. Alanis May 5, 2010 at 7:53 am #

    You do realize that zzz and shh and what ever else you said are not words, right? Abbreviations aren’t words, and neither are sounds. Y when there is no other vowel in the word, becomes a vowel.

    Wow… First off let me congratulate you may be one of the most arrogant, self-righteous person ever. First off let’s talk about ghettos, insinuating that because someone has bad grammar and spelling he or she lives in a ghetto is a huge generalization, there are actually smart people who are at a disadvantage because they were born into a poor family, it is not their fault they can not afford to go to a good school. This is a perfect segway to my next point, you said “pay attention in the public school people like me fund” It is absolutely shameful that you put yourself on such a high pedestal by making people like Emma feel inferior to you just because you may have a bit more money than her (or maybe even less, seeing as how you don’t even know her I doubt that your accusation was fair). It is people like you who give the upper-middle to upper class a bad name, people who go around flaunting their riches and good fortunes to people who can barely afford to pay rent in houses. So before you finish apologizing to everyone who is reading this on behalf of Emma and her “apparent” lack of intelligence let me apologize to the readers for your arrogance and tell them that not all people who were blessed with wealth act the same way you do.

    You started out with “ay” but since “a” is a vowel that should not have made your list of 34 words. Neither should “gyve”.

    You also missed words like nth, stymy, shh, mm, byrl, crypt, cwm, crwth, wryly, myrrh, wyn, wynn, xylyl, hm, hmm, br, brr, pry, plus the plurals of many words like hymns, myths, cysts, and trysts.

    After reading this for a while I’ve noticed some inattentive posts (gnu), some creative interpretations (nth) and one that seems to really fit the criterium (psst). But that long list of words full of y’s, did that person go to school in Texas?

    no one said anything about not liking foriegn languages..but “w” is only a vowel in two words in the whole english language..”cwm” and “cwr” in these circumstances it is referred to as a dipthong.. and im pretty sure no second grader knows what a dipthong is(:

    Thanks SG. Emma’s an idiot who probably flunked second grade. She also said “w” is a vowel; if I remember right, that’s not true. In fact, “w” as in “winner” is most certainly NOT a vowel. Go hide your face in shame somewhere emma, because you couldn’t pass kindergarten the way you’re going. It’s a wonder you can type, oh wait you can’t. Proof: “differance” “ect.” “lease” “damb” “forien” “laugages” “extermly” “your” “dose” “stupider”. Stupider is not a word, and it’s “etc.,” not ect. Go back to school emma, you need it.
    On the other hand, thank goodness there are people like SG saving the world from imminent ignorance. Kudos to you.

  347. SG January 29, 2010 at 4:12 pm #

    Hi Emma,
    Before calling anyone a “retard” you should perhaps run your spell check…or maybe refer to a dictionary. Here in America, by the way, no one says “damb”. We also use the word “foreign” not “forien”. Also, here in America (and if I’m not mistaken, generally in the English language), dose refers to the dosage of, lets say, medicine. I believe the word your little brain was trying to provide was “does”. As far as your question to the general public “(also how dose it feel to be stupider than a second grader?)”, I believe you have proven to be the best qualified to answer that yourself. Now, please stop embarrassing yourself, and crawl back into that ghetto hole you call home, and next time, pay attention in the public school people like me fund.
    To the rest of the group here, please ignore people like Emma, and try not to hold the rest of America responsible for her ignorance.
    Thank you guys.

  348. Emma January 28, 2010 at 4:57 pm #

    you guys are all retards we should all know by now that “Y” and “w” are vowels ask any second grader they can tell you the differance and of course i understand there are more than one type of dictonary (a spanish, english, german, british, ect.) but if your going to use those words at lease dont mix it with words from the english dictonary because here in america we really dont give a damb about forien laugages, and in some cultures it is extermly rude to talk forien langages because we dont know what your saying. ( also how dose it feel to be stupider than a second grader?)

    ps u can’t address women to mrs anymore according to people for too much assumptions towards women and leave out the dot just like the comma when u address location ex// Toronto Ontario .. u see it on mail unless they claim to be mrs..computer can be wrong their still working on the universal language English :)

    Actually, if you do any research on the subject, ‘Y’ is indeed considered to be a vowel in BOTH of the instances in which you used it. In fact, it has been taught in many schools (you can further do research on this, if you so choose), that the letter ‘W’ is also a vowel, so the words of welsh origin “cwm”, for example, DO, in fact, have a vowel in them. I have been so far unable, however, to find out the current status of the letter ‘W’, and whether it can be considered to be a vowel or not. (The most convining arguement I’ve heard thus far has been that ‘W’ is considered a vowel in a word when it is not followed by another vowel, which the exception of the letter ‘H’ [such as when, why, etc], such as how, saw, and dew). Honestly, before you go around telling people not to be idiots, you might want to do a little research yourself.

    These are all part of the “sometimes” exception to the a, e, i, o, u, list of vowels. In the Dark Ages (1960), I was taught the rule is a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes Y and W. However, it is interesting that depending upon your source, Y & W are often left out. If you use multiple sources for your research (which must always be done)you will find many variations! Here are a few examples:

    Vowel, n.
    A letter, such as a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes y in the English alphabet, that represents a vowel.
    The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition copyright ©2000 by Houghton Mifflin Company. Updated in 2009. Published by Houghton Mifflin Company

    n vowel
    1 in English and many other languages, the letters a, e, i, o, u.
    2 (also vowel sound) any of the sounds represented by these five letters or by y, or by combination of these with each other and/or w.
    Copyright © 2009 K Dictionaries Ltd

    Vowel
    a letter or symbol, representing a vowel, usually used in English of a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes y.
    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary

    Webster’s Dictionary, 1913
    Vow”el (?), n. [F. voyelle, or an OF. form without y, L. vocalis (sc. littera), from vocalis sounding, from vox, vocis, a voice, sound. See Vocal.] (Phon.) A vocal, or sometimes a whispered, sound modified by resonance in the oral passage, the peculiar resonance in each case giving to each several vowel its distinctive character or quality as a sound of speech; — distinguished from a consonant in that the latter, whether made with or without vocality, derives its character in every case from some kind of obstructive action by the mouth organs. Also, a letter or character which represents such a sound. In the English language, the written vowels are a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes w and y.

    From: Dictionary.com (The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition Copyright © 2009 by Houghton Mifflin Company.)
    Vowel, noun.
    2. a letter representing or usually representing a vowel, as, in English, a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes w and y.

    WHEN IS “w” A VOWEL
    Yes, there are two words in the english language that use the letter “w” as a vowel. The first is “cwm” pronounced “coom” which is the basin at the bottom of a mountain sometimes containing a lake and the other is “crwth” which is an ancient celtic musical instrument.
    http://www.englishforums.com/English/WhenIsWAVowel/mwbn/post.h...

    AskOxford: Is the letter Y a vowel or a consonant?
    (This consonant sound, like that of the letter W, is sometimes called a ‘semivowel’ because it is made in a similar way to a vowel, but functions in contrast to vowels when used in words.) Whether the letter Y is a vowel or a consonant is therefore rather an arbitrary decision.

    However, Remember that “shhh”, “psst”, and “mm-hmm,” are actually a form of Onomatopoeia, or a word or a grouping of words that imitates the sound it is describing.

    the majority of the english language is derived from other origins so crwth is as much a word as anything else on your list…
    and remember, all words with y in them, use y as a vowel.
    remember vowels are a,e,i,o,u and sometimes y
    y is definitely a vowel when there is no other vowel in the word besides y

    also cwm is a word with no vowel

    Vowels as I understand it are, a speech sound made by allowing air to pass through the middle of your mouth without being stopped by your tongue or your lips. Say it with me now. A,E,I,O,U If you can say Y without using your lips or tongue I will stand corrected.

    Granted there are many words without vowels. I learned there were 5 vowels and oh, yes sometimes “Y”, but “y” is definitely not a vowel. My God..hasn’t anyone heard?
    I believe “Y” can be considered a semi-vowel, as well as “H” and “W” when followed by a vowel. If you look at the words above, the letters that follow the “Y” are not vowels. Therefore, I don’t believe that “Y” is even considered a semi-vowel in these words.

    You forgot a few; syn, pnyx, glyph, wyrd, pht, hwyl, hyp…not to mention, pry, hm & hmm, wyn, nth and cwm

    Vowels are, strictly speaking, sounds, not letters of the alphabet.
    The letters of the alphabet used to represent vowel sounds are a, e, i, o, u, w, and y.

    The sound of “w” in “water” and of “y” in “yes” are called semi-vowels or glides; however, these glide sounds are not the only sounds which “w” and “y” represent. They can represent full vowels as well, as in “crwth” and “cyst” and “sky”.

    Furthermore, “w” is associated with “u” and “y” is associated with “i”, so that “u” and “i” also represent the glide sounds in “water” and “yes”, as in “quite” and “onion”. Had history gone a little differently, we might now be spelling these last two as “qwite” and “onyon”!

    So the little clause “and sometimes ‘y'” is really a misleading little clause. It presupposes that the glide sound in “yes” is to be considered a consonant. Otherwise, the “y” would be considered a vowel the same as “a, e, i, o, u”, i.e., always a vowel. And if “y” is not a vowel when a glide, then neither is “i”, and there should be another clause saying that “i” is “only sometimes a vowel”, it not being so when it represents a glide (as in “onion”).

    In summary, “i”, “u”, “y”, and “w” are all used to represent both glides (semi-vowels) and full vowels.

    Keep in mind that all of theese include y, which could be considered a vowel, but in my schooling, it was only a,e,i,o,u, and sometimes y, but that was added on much later. Plus, keep in mind sometimes y, which means it is not an official vowel. So, you could consider these to not have vowels, or they could. Your call.

    Consider it what you want, just remember that the english language is screwed up enough anyway, and that’s why we are arguing over words with no vowels with y being a vowel. However, in my schooling, y was not a vowel, so don’t call me a dumbass because of what I had drilled into my head when I was 5. Thank you.
