    Bummer... I was hoping it would take a little longer than that. I guess it's been around too long.

    Try another: What common ordinary English word has three sets of double letters adjacent to each other?

    Same as rgoudie, only with HE.

    Which words end in four or more consonants?

    There are many words in English which only contain one vowel (eg there). But which of them contains the most repetitions of a vowel?

    Answers to the first question include: "headache" and "heartache"...not sure if there are any others?

    As for the second question, words ending in "ghts", such as "thoughts" and "flights"

    Not sure about the third one - "banana" is the best I can come up with at the mo' but that seems a bit weak! (S'pose there's "Mississippi" but dunno if that's allowed)

    I can't think of any others on the first one.

    OK, how about words ending in four or more consonants not involving gh?

    You can do a lot better than banana.

    How about this one:

    Two words (at least) that contain all of the vowels in order only once.

    Bonus question: all of the vowels plus y.
