comment Can we call something a “word” if it doesn't have a vowel?
What is the second letter of the English alphabet? What letter often represents a percentage score of 80-89? What's the first letter of the words 'bee'? The word 'B' may not be acceptable in Scrabble, but it's definitely a word. 'nth' is probably the most commonly used example of a vowel-less word

In Welsh words like cwn and cwm, I would argue that w is a vowel.

comment Word meaning “the act of intending to do nothing”
Has no one mentioned "laissez-faire" (in its original French sense) yet? I sometimes refer to it as lazy/fair, because that's my opinion of its effect on the economy (lazy government = do nothing = fair).
