After GRLC I was thinking of its relative and imagined what that would be like without vowels. The answer then appeared right below.

I find that the ones that start with vowels are the hardest, since you don’t have that beginning sound to get you on the right track. Good quiz, though. I had a lot fun trying to figure out the answers, even if I didn’t get them all.

It might be an American spelling but I've always known it as 'beetroot' so that stumped me.

I wouldn't really call y a vowel, so I don't think the y should be left out

Level 73
Apr 27, 2020
It functions as a vowel in the only answer containing it, so the quiz should stay as is.
+1
Level 27

"y" only functions as a vowel when there is no other vowel in the word, so in this case it does not count as a vowel.
+5

sel, by that logic Y is a vowel in RHYTHM but isn't a vowel in RHYTHMIC, despite functioning in exactly the same way. That rule is incorrect.

Y functions as a vowel when it makes a vowel sound such as the long e sound in celery. It functions as a consonant when it makes the sound of y in yellow.

hmmm... the "u" in "Squash" functions as a consonant though. (It would be weird having it as such in the quiz though.)

Level 53

"U" does not function as a consonant in squash. In English, we can blend together two vowel sounds to make a diphthong. A diphthong is essentially a single syllable that carries two separate vowel sounds. In squash, you are likely making a long /oo/ followed by /aw/, but blending them together into one syllable. Japanese is an example of a language that does not typically use diphthongs (which is why English haikus are wrong and stupid). For the record, any letter that creates a syllable has to be considered a vowel. In celery, the "y" clearly is a syllable. Cel-er-y.

By that logic, W must be a vowel in "wash"

Agree with (general?) APHill - Y can be either a consonant or a vowel, depending on its function in the word.

I was stuck on PTT for ages. My Irish passport would br revoked if I missed that one.

I missed that one aswell I was thinking patat many times (which are fries in english) eventhough I tried to get it out of my head, maybe I shouldn't have.. and think more about the word, and what fries are made of, man..

I also missed corn, which ok, if I am gonna miss one, I am fine it is that one, but, I actually kept thinking of acorn! It really should have dawned on me haha

There's a reason that it goes: "And sometimes 'Y'." This is not one of those times.

That last letter is not used as a consonant there. Make sure that when you listen to what your teachers say in school, you listen to both halves of the lesson.

I'm totally baffled by this quiz. It says the quiz is regarding missing vowels and yet, in the body of the frame, it shows the consonants that are missing.

Also included are collard greens, kohlrabi, and brussels sprouts. I served fresh kohlrabi from my garden last night, and considering what brassicas do to my husband after he eats them, I don't find anything about them funny, fact or otherwise, but he quite enjoys them. :)
