a,e,i,o,u an sometimes y
well this saying goes when there is only an y in the word so technically y is a vowel

the letter Y has never been considered a vowel. look in the Oxford English Dictionary under "Vowels".

Y is not considered a vowel in the English language, just in the American adaptation of it. other 5+ vowel free words:- rhythm, hymns. Any more out there?

My first reaction was: "Oh, that's easy! Rythym! Of course, I'm an idiot...

Both Y and W act as vowels in the English language. But I think that's too pedantic for this teaser. The major problem with the teaser is that there is more than one answer: nymph, tryst, pygmy, etc.
