cvc words

Postby Nuit » 14 Jan 2012, 11:02

cvc = consonant-vowel-consonant

are there 2 letters out there that take all 5 vowels, to make 5 easy-ish english words?

closest I've come is bat, bet, bit, bot (? - mmm), but.
It's raining again here. I'm rising up like a beautiful bubble to the surface.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.
I was what you would call seriously strung out.

finally came up with 'b*g' over lunch. But 'p*t' is also pretty good :thumbsup:. In fact, prob better for a 5 year old, as she knows all of those, apart from maybe pit.

Of course. But it doesn't follow the conventional phonetic pronunciation of a cvc word.

If you consider that "ck" represents one sound, and c and k are pronounced the same:

cack (slang for shit)
Keck (an observatory)
kick
cock
cuck (slang for cuckold)
