Is it possible to make a list of twenty six words, each one containing a different doubled letter of the alphabet?
(It was the lovely word screwworm that started me wondering.)
Well, let's see:
Aardvark, bobble, tobacco, waddle, dweeb, faff, gaggle, withhold, skiing, j (hm, I'll have to research that one) bookkeeping, loll, mummer, cunning, loon, popper, q (something Arabic?), barrage, rattle, vacuum, screwworm, x (someone must have made one up at some point, surely) y (um....), huzzah!
So, how about j, q, x and y? Well, apparently English has avijjā, huqqa and cubbyyew.
Avijjā is a Buddhist term for ignorance; a huqqa is an alternative spelling for a hookah; and a cubbyyew is a large sea fish, Elacate canada.
As far as I can discover from Those Who Know, though, there's no genuine double x word in English. Which is sad.
Never mind. I send this list to you with all best wishes, anyway,
