Three-letter vowel-less English word

Three-letter vowel-less word describes a word in the English language which contains three letters, none of which is generally recognized as a symbol representing a vowel. These words will usually contain voiced vowels that are represented or implied by the consonant letters.


An example of a five-letter vowel-less English word: Not only Welsh, but English-speaking linguists consider the "w" in cwm and crwth as a vowel. In both words it makes the "oo" sound, like in the word loose.
