U2 Sucks - (Apologies to Bono)

March 8, 2018

Having too many U’s on your rack can certainly be a drawback. Maybe this list of 5 letter words with at least 2 U’s will help in that situation. I have restricted it to words that have two U’s but that you don’t need an S to play. That would be a much bigger list because of words ending -US, such as MUCUS.

 

AHURU                       A small fish
AUGUR                       To tell from signs
AURUM                      Gold
BUCHU / BUCKU       Alternative spellings of an African medicinal plant
BUNDU                       A remote, uncultivated region
BUTUT                        The currency of Gambia
CUTUP                        A mischievous person
DURUM                      A strain of wheat
FUGUE                        To compose a type of music
HUDUD                       A set of Laws and punishments specified in the Koran
JUGUM                       A pair of opposite leaves
KAURU                        The edible stem of the New Zealand cabbage tree
KUDZU                        An ornamental plant
MUNTU                      A black African
QUEUE                        To wait in line
QUIPU                         A calculating device using knotted cords
TUKTU                        Another name for the caribou
TUQUE                        A knitted woollen cap
UHURU                       A word of Swahili origin that signifies national independence
UNCUT                        Not cut
UNDUE                       Not due
UNDUG                       Not dug
UNGUM                     To free from gum
UPRUN                       To run up
URUBU                       The American black vulture
UVULA                        the fleshy portion of the soft palate
VOULU                        A word of French origin meaning deliberate or contrived

 

Answers to the last quiz:    STEAMED, EMERALD, DEMONIC, NUMERAL, MARTINI, DOORMAT, TAXIMEN, MINORED, MANHOLE, MEGAHIT

 

There were no particularly unusual words in that last set, but congratulate yourself if you got MEGAHIT. A very hard word to spot.

 

The combinations for the next quiz all contain the letter U:

 

A – E – G – I – N – S – U

A – I – L – O – S – T – U

A – E – E – N – N – T – U

E – I – N – O – R – T – U

E – I – M – O – R – S – U

I – O – O – R – S – T – U

B – E – I – L – R – T – U 

E – H – I – R – S – T – U 

B – D – E – I – N – O – U 

A – L – N – O – R – S – U 

 

Cheers
