English Words Without Vowels
"Are there any vowel-free English words?" This is a common question that most English students have wondered about.
English words without vowels are sometimes valid in Scrabble. English's variety, complexity, and oddness disprove the idea that all languages follow the same rules. There are a number of words that do not contain the letters A E I O U, particularly those that are not of English origin.
Nobody expects to find words that lack vowels, but they do exist. Any player in a word game must be aware of the words that their opponent will not think of.
Words With No Vowels (Containing Y)
Choosing words that contain the letter Y is one strategy for creating words without vowels. Because Y is a versatile letter, it allows you to play words with only consonants, which can significantly increase the point potential of word games.
Here are some typical examples:
HYMN: a religious song or poem of praise to God or a god.
XYST: a long portico
SYNC: to match up.
RHYTHM: a strong, regular, repeated pattern of movement or sound.
