Belive me, I didn't know this, but a handy website called Wikipidea teaches you anything


After reading your post, I actualy sat and tried to think of a word containing only vowels (besides the one in this teaser). It took me a second, before I just said "I"!

Euouae is the longest word containing only vowels.

Is that a good enough sentence?

That's not a word. If it ain't in the dictionary... Not a word! It's defunct.

It isn't a word....it is something to help medieval times music peeps to remember "seculorum Amen" AKA "s(E)c(U)l(O)r(U)m (A)m(E)n". The only place that says it is a word is not the Dictionary, but rather the Guiness Book of World Records.

Isn't this pure trivia?

Oh yeah it is! . Luckily (?) it's pretty much "grandfathered" into the site, as its over a year old.

Also, this was submitted well before the Trivia section was introduced.
