  • hernesheir encourages me to make some kind of comment here, asserting precedence of coinage, but as noted below, there are other coinages of which I am more proud. Still, I know that there is a diligent cohort of Wordnikians for whom panvocalics hold a certain fatal fascination - God bless 'em.

  • Just read the first comment on this word for the first time. Mollusque, that warms my heart--it's the best Wordie discovery story ever.

  • Ah yes. Feels like home, doesn't it? ;-)

  • Thanks, reesetee. I've been compiling word lists for 30 years, mostly in isolation, so it's amazing to find a community of Borgmannian logophiliacs.

  • I second that. Ensnorkelled has no match (although I do like burnt umbrage, too).

    And mollusque, welcome to Wordie!

  • For "ensnorkled" you should forever be enshrined in the Wordie firmament, si. No one has ever topped that one, and I suspect no one ever will.

    But we'll by God keep trying!

  • Aw shucks, it seemed kind of self-evident. I think I'm prouder of some of my other neologisms, such as ensnorkelled or burnt umbrage. :)

  • Containing all the vowels (adj.), a word that contains all the vowels (noun). First coined by Peter T. Daniels on 20 Feb 2005 on Coined independently by Sionnach in a comment on murcielago on 24 October 2007, which I discovered through a Google search when I became the third person to independently coin panvocalic, on 28 October 2007. That search is also how I discovered Wordie.
