comment a word that contains every vowel contigiously
This seems to be the French spelling. In English, I would only understand it spelled as meowed which would not satisfy the question.

comment Why do “bomb” and “tomb” have different pronunciations?
You need to look up and watch Gallager's comb-numb-nome routine. (Currently at a computer that restricts video, else I'd share a link.)

comment Origin of “More X than you can shake a stick at”
If this is your own guess, then it is inappropriate for this site. References, or it isn't true.

comment “It calls itself”
In French je m'appelle, tu t'appelle, and il (elle) s'appelle which literally translate as "I call myself, you call yourself, he (she, it) calls him (her, its) self" are a standard idiomatic way of saying "my (your, his, her, its) name is." Perhaps this passage was translated from a language with a similar idiom?

comment Is “belongingness” used in American English?
I've never heard it before. But if you drop the "ness" - "the construction of social belonging is markedly a relational process" then yes, that sounds natural.

comment what does “gopher” means in computer programming context?
@GregLee- You might be thinking of the Gopher protocol, whose name is a play on both the U. Minnesota mascot where it was developed, and its purpose to "go for" documents. It was a kinda-sorta-almost predecessor of HTTP.

comment Is there a ly word describing 5 times a week?
I can do it in four words: "daily on weekdays only" and maybe with three by dropping "only." But not with just one.

comment Usage and origin of “prioritize”
Hypothetically, if my wife had asked me to sit down with her to prioritize our wish list against our budget (Honey, I know we want a new sailboat way more than we care about re-shingling the roof, but since that leak appeared in little Jenny's bedroom window....) would that be sufficient proof of its casual register? (Full disclosure- I'm not married, no kids, and both own a small sailboat and recently repaired my roof - but hypothetically...)
