That 5 Letter English Word with “W” as the vowel! Learn a new Word!

Every morning when I wake up I go through my morning rituals while sipping my first “cuppa” tea in bed. (You have to remember I’ve been married to an English lady for over 50 years.)

  1. The pills: don’t want to forget those at age 78. No use going “South” to visit with the grim reaper any sooner than necessary.
  2. Then I grab my cell phone and go to NY Times quick brain wake-up game, “Wordle” for my one chance to find a 5 letter word in 6 tries (Fun! >): http://Wordle – The New York Times https://www.nytimes.com/games/wordle/index.html
  3. When I finish my game, I send my sister my number of tries to get the word and then move on to “Quordle”, the tougher quick game for my one try at finding all four words with only 9 chances! (Great mental workout!>0) I use a piece of scratch paper to help with my quest for the words: http://Quordle https://www.quordle.com

So! today! Wordle had a word to find that used only th eletter “Y” as vowel in the five letter word. Stretched my not quite awake brain a bit, but I got it in 4 tries. Whew!

Then I thought back to my Grade School Days and language learning things drilled into us in second and third grades while we were learning to read and spell. ( Oh! Remember Spelling Bee’s? Regina Cullen always came in first place! You don’t have to think very hard to know who generally when out first! Yep, yours truly, the guy who still tries to be a writer.) You know those rules: 1. “I” before “E” except after “C” or when sounded like “A” and in ‘neighbor’ and ‘weigh’ . (So how do you pronounce: Seize? Weird? Forfeit?…).

OK, enough of that one, but what about how about: “Let’s learn our vowels, children! They are: A, E, I , O, U, and sometimes Y and W.”

W? What words in English have a “W” as the vowel?

I only knew One Word – Cwm – (Pronounced- Koom) meaning a mountain area like a cirque.

So I looked it up! –
