Is dreamt the only English word that ends with "mt"?

It probably depends how you define 'word', but dreamt + its derivatives (undreamt, and possibly daydreamt) are the only ones, unless you include the name Klimt. –  Roaring Fish Aug 25 '12 at 12:06
No need for a down vote. How many honestly knew the fact before this question was posted? –  Kris Aug 25 '12 at 12:30

Although a little crass language here's the wiki answer: wiki.answers.com/Q/… –  mac389 Aug 25 '12 at 12:39
If you're talking about pronunciation, I pronounce exempt, tempt, unkempt, and similar words with 'mt'. (And so do a lot of other people, since Merriam-Webster pronunciation gives the 'p' as optional.) –  Peter Shor Aug 25 '12 at 14:29

If you exclude abbreviations and allow for possible variants of the same word, then yes.

You can also confirm this via regexdict with the search string, .*mt$.
