  3. 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. 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.”

  7. 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:

  8. 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?

    what do you think about these words?

  12. i think “GYM” is d another word which does not contain any vowel but it surely contains “Y” …

    u did a great job dude …………

  13. 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!

    Reply
  14. 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.

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

    Reply
  16. 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?

  17. this has been not helpfull at all im trying to do some home work and im ten and i know that most of them are not even words that make any sense so can som one else make a better list because im sorry but thats not a good list . lol !!!

  19. 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

  20. 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!

    • since when the HECK is W a vowel???

      and Y is only a vowel if its a the end of a word.

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

  23. You fail at life go crawl in a ditch and die, you got two of them wrong

    “AY – it has an “A” in it, its a vowel
    “GYVE” – it has an “E” in it, its a vowel!

    Just give up on yourself ay?

    Reply
  24. 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.

    Reply
  25. ooookay so y can be used when no other vowels are present allsoooo the first word has an a in it and last time i checked it was

    A E I O U and SOMETIMES Y

  26. To all the people who think “w” is never used as a vowel I ask: How do you pronounce “vowel”

    Reply
  27. ….a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes y are vowels… Also after some research the other day i found that w can also be used as a vowel…so none of your words work..

    Reply
  28. Y can be use as a substitute for a vowel, but technically is not a vowel, so your comment would be corrected thus:

    I IS A RETUUUUURHHHEED….

    HURUHR DEEERRRPPPP…

    Reply
  29. 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.

    Reply
  30. Well in response, I feel that I should let you know that “definately” is spelled “definitely”. Good try

    Reply
  31. uh yeah really, and Y can also be a vowel in some cases so really i bet half of those words use Y as a vowel

    Reply
  32. >Y when there is no other vowel in the word, becomes a vowel.

    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.

  33. 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.

    Reply
  34. 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. You people are all ether really dumb, or failed the first grade when they taught all this. You just got burned by a 13 year old.

  35. 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.

  38. Y becomes a vowel when there are no vowels in the word
    It’s a rule of English. All words must have a vowel. Otherwise, it’s not English; it’s moonspeak.

    Reply
  39. You’re right in the fact that Y is not a vowel in some cases. But in pretty much EVERY single word used in the list above, it IS used as a vowel. In, for example, the word ‘Yellow’ Y is not a vowel. But in the words ‘Why’ ‘Cry’ and ‘Dye’, ‘Y’ is used as a vowel.

    Reply
  40. 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(:

    Reply
  41. 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.

  42. 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.

  43. 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?)

  44. 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.

  45. Y is a vowel because in school they have said ever since i was little the vowels are “A,E,I,O,U and sometimes Y” so sometimes y is a vowel either way its a vowel but i dont understand why they say sometimes y but it is a vowel so i’ve learned :P

    Reply
  46. 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

    Reply
  47. i believe you forgot a few, most notably, “nth” as in to the nth degree. others are called onomatopoeias or onomatopœias(in Greek). They are any WORD that describes a sound, such as Bang. But the ones with no vowels are ones such as, BRR, BRRR, HM, HMM, MM, PFFT, PHPHT, PHT, PSST, SH, SHH, TSK, TSKS, TSKTSK, TSKTSKS, ZZZ’S

    Reply
  48. I DONT THINK YOU DID. TAKE IT FROM A PERSON WHO IS STILL IN SCHOOL, THAT THEY DO TEACH YOU THAT Y IS SOMETIMES A VOWEL. THIS LESSON IS THEN FOLLOWED THROUGHOUT THE YEARS WITH THE RULES THAT COME WITH Y BEING A VOWEL. IT ALSO COMES AS A SHOCKER THAT WHEN YOU TAKE A HOME EC OR ANY KIND OF HEALTH CLASS, THEY TEACH YOU THAT TOMATOS ARE A FRUIT. THANK YOU AND…… GO BACK TO SCHOOL.

    Reply
  49. YOU NEED TO GO BACK TO HIGH SCHOOL. YES THE VOWELS ARE (A,E,I,O,U) AND THEN SOMETIMES Y. Y IS CONSIDERED A VOWEL WHEN IT IS PRONOUNCED AS ANOTHER LONG VOWEL. FOR EXAMPLE, CRY, THE Y STRESSES AN I SOUND. THEREFORE, MOST OF THE WORDS ON THIS LIST ARE BUNK. THEY ARE ALL CONSIDERED TO HAVE VOWELS BECAUSE OF HOW THE Y IS USED. AND BY THE WAY, IM ONLY 19 AND INFORMING YOU IDOITS OF THIS FACT. THANK YOU AND GO BACK TO SCHOOL.

  51. I just found out Y is a vowel (sometimes). Or maybe I had forgotten from when I was in school . I always thought it was just A E I O U …. Have been told by my whole family today how stupid I am, It feels great. But it is very comforting to know I am not the only one who thought this!

  52. There “ARE”( not is stupid, its plural) vowels in some words and i can say there is because crwth is an english word and your retarted.

  53. I’m so shocked, I always thought all words had a vowel when I found out there were word that didn’t have a vowel I had to look it up very quickly this has made my day.

    Reply
  54. A E I O U, are the only vowels. Schools do not teach Y as a vowel. Universities do not teach Y as a vowel, it’s like is a tomato a fruit or vegetable.

    Reply
  55. ‘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!
