    Haha, I really like this idea! Perhaps it has been mentioned here before, but I ran across it late last night, for the first time.

    I can just imagine some of the stratics mods, mousie weapon in hand, skillfully disemvoweling offending posts!

    One way the urban dictionary defines disemvowel is:
    "To remove the vowels from a piece of text as a form of censure. In order to render the piece more difficult to read. Generally done by the moderator of an online community."

    I think there are lots of things in global chat that could use to be disemvoweled. :sword:

    Only sometimes. For instance, in the word "yellow," or the word "you" as used above, it's a consonant.

    But in which language?

    In myth and rhyme and rhythm it is, in yellow and yodel and yesterday it's not.
    But that's only in English. What is it in Danish? or German? or French?

    btw 'urban dictionary' is not a recognised source of accurate information.

    prooven by this entry which I believe was submitted by a Siege Perilous poster.

    Rather depends on whether its a written or pronounced vowel. When pronounced as [j], its not a vowel, but it is written still.

    The rule is rather long and obscure...it doesn't matter and its about as useful a discussion as trying to have sex with a fly.

    There's a danish saying when you're discussing little irrelevant/petty things, its called "screwing a fly"

    hehe, that's very funny, Petra! Cool, too - you have been urbanly dictionized! (new word, yes) Your tactics have been digitally preserved and will be known 'til the end of time =)

    I know $21.95 is a bit much for a coffee mug, but you should have one of those made. That's just hilarious.

    It took me a minute, but with the help of my trusty batman decoder ring I was able to crack the code. *clp clp*

    The way I learned it was vowels are a, e, i, o, u and sometimes y. The "sometimes" is when it is typically the first letter of a word - as shown in the examples. Thus RaDian is correct.

    a,e,i,o,u = vowels.

    y = not a vowel.

    Old School = vowels are a, e, i, o, u and sometimes y and w.

    Say it out loud, it rhymes.

    Oxford Dictionaries (paragraphing only to make it more clear) says:
    Linky.

    At Ask Answers (this link) you will find these two snippets for the question "When is Y a vowel?" and I have included the misspelling of "vowel' as 'vowell':
    Thus it can be either vowel or consonant - based on usage. Thus it is not explicitly either.

    Nice, Petra! I'm glad you ordered it. It will probably bring you many smiles.
    That wasn't a bad delivery time for a personalized item.
