More Words With Five Vowels

September 27, 2018

I thought the quiz could be a little different this time. There are ten words of 8 letters that have 5 vowels, of which 3 of them are the letter I.

 

I have given you all the letters for them below, but just for a change I will also give you the meanings. That will definitely help you solve at least 2 or 3 of them.

 

AADIIINR       A congenital condition in which the eye is incompletely formed

AAIIILMR       A skin condition

AAIIIMNR      A preliminary stomping and glaring ritual in Sumo wrestling

ACCIIIOT        A South American tree whose seeds are used in paints and varnishes

ADIIIQRU       A cocktail

AEIIINTT         To begin or start

AEIIIRRT         Gladiators armed with nets

CDEIIIOS        Stupidities

HIIIOOPP       (Maori) The New Zealand pipit (a bird)

IIIOSTTU         A marmoset (type of South American monkey)

 

Some words there you should find and some very unlikely ones as well. I thought the most surprising thing was that if your rack was AAIIIMR that there would be two different letters you could look for on the board to try to play a bingo.

 

There are nearly 500 words of 8 letters that have 5 vowels. The ones above are perhaps some of the more unlikely ones, so this week’s list will be the 50 most probable ones:
