Thursday Thirteen - brought to you by vowels

 Do you remember what the vowels are?  A, E, I, O, U, and sometimes Y.  

The following is a list of words I like that begin with a vowel.

1.  innocuous - harmless, safe.

2.  ubiquitous - common, everywhere, ever-present

3.  agonizing - difficult and painful suffering (physical or emotional pain)

4.  ingenious - clever, intelligent, brilliant

5.  elegant - beautiful, classic, sophisticated 

6.  innovative - creative, cutting-edge, state-of-the-art

7.  integrity - honest, upright, ethical

8.  authentic - real, genuine

9.  ostentatious - flamboyant, showy, flashy

10. unabashed - shameless, not embarassed

11. eccentric - bizarre, unusual

12. atypical - nonconforming, peculiar, not the norm

13. idiosyncratic - distinctive, quirky, unique

Don't forget to visit Thursday Thirteen!


  1. Sounds almost like a poem forming. I read that in Hebrew the vowels are left out so that the speaker or reader can infuse the spirit in the word. I once wrote a poem about how consonants are like the carbs of language and vowels are the verbs.

  2. Some excellent words.

    Grandma says when she was in school, it was also taught that "w" is sometimes a vowel, and i get why. In English, we don't end words with a single letter "u" (with the exception of the words you and thou), so words ending in "ow" are quite literally "ouu". The "u" is doubled!

  3. Great words.
    Coffee is on, and stay safe.
