How many words contain all 5 vowels?

Monday, August 12th, 2013

In the early 1990s, I was obsessed with identifying English words that contained all five vowels. As I ran across them in newspapers, magazines, and books, I added them to a list. After the list reached 30 entries, I thought it would be fun to create a short piece of prose that included all these a-e-i-o-u words structured into meaningful sentences. I used this as a basis for a puzzle for my family and friends. And it entertained me for months.
