    1. I have always noticed that myself. Maybe it's so that we can pronounce them properly. Not every word has a vowel in it though.

    Yes, every word does. Y counts as a vowel when there aren't any other vowels in the word.

    Yes Nova Scotian girls...wait...my mastake...i mean women...

    Perhaps every word in the English language. But not in others. But then if we were to try and spell the words how they are pronounced then we'd probably just add the vowels where they sounded.
    If you think about it it makes sense -letters are all just sounds we can make. We put the sounds together to make words.
    I'm probably not making much sense, but you could think of it abit like colours. Vowels are like the primary colours- they all have individual sounds. But cosonants are abit of a mix, because they have their own sound, but when said, we can add a vowel in to spell the sound. A, B (bee), C (sea), D (dee), E, F (eff), G (gee)...So even if it's just consonants we put in a vowel sound.

    Actually I haven't explained that at all how I meant, and I can't seem to articulate my thoughts.

    Blah.

    Y's not a vowel, but it does act as a vowel in some words, like hymn, rhyme and rhythm.

    a, e, i, o, u but Y??? I thought I was taught English at school.....?

    Like I said before, it's probably to do with pronounciation. I have also wondered why you use 'an' instead of 'a' before some words which begin with 'h'.

    Eg. 'an hour' sounds more correct than 'a hour'. Well, that's what I think anyways lol.

    Maybe some English student here could clarify it for us.

    The word: "My" doesn't have a vowel in it. Apparently Y is a kind of vowel though. I dunno. :confused:

    Rhythm Has Your Two Hips Moving = RHYTHM, thats the only thing I learnt in my English class.
