    Literally, qualis means "of what kind." Non sum qualis eram means "I'm not what I used to be."

    But like rythym and cry it does have a letter giving a vowel sound (the W).

    rHyth/m
    rhythm

    Rhythms. 7 letters no vowel. Longest in the dictionary I think.
    Strengths. 9 letters. Longest with one vowel.
    I would hazard a guess that strengthens is the longest with two vowels.

    words with no vowels are the following:

    sky, why, fly, by, spy, cry, pry, shy, rhythm, fry,myth, thy......

    Please note that in all this words the letter 'y' comes, in fact y is called a semi vowel.
