Dear Y, when is it sometimes?

So we’re all aware of a-e-i-o-u and sometimes y as being the standard vowels in the English language. During my pursuit to discover when y wasn’t considered a vowel, I was, as usual, sidetracked and discovered the Dictionary of All Vowel Words.

Some of the words are real, some are a little more out there (as in a-a-a-a-a-a-oooooo. n. the sobbing moan of the lovelorn, as in the ska song �All My Tears (Come Rolling).�) but it’s a good time for those who dig on words anyway.

I also discovered a nice article on exactly what a vowel is. Now I’ll be able to WOW my friends and family when there aren’t any board games or alcohol to keep us consumed!
