We all know what vowels are, right? The “a”, “e”, “i”, “o”, and “u” letters in the alphabet. It’s hard to find words that don’t have vowels in them. Sometimes we include the “y” as part of a vowel. You often hear our vowels are “a,e,i,o,u, and sometimes y”. For those that like to play Scrabble, knowing what words don’t contain a vowel can be very important. If you’re stuck with no vowels in Scrabble; then I sure hope you have a “y” as one of your letters. The “y” can help you spell many words.
