I don’t know why it is but every once in awhile I run across something that catches my attention in a beyond-the-obvious way. It could be a tree that has odd little clusters of leaves, it could be a big rock that doesn’t have any lichens on it. It could be a roadkill skunk. Or it could be a word that has way too many vowels in a row.
Here’s a challenge to my readers: What word has the vowels EAUI in it all in a row? Hint: it starts with P and ends in G and is three syllables long and means reaching a state of little or no change following a period of activity or progress. It has an L and an N and a T and another A in it. Ten letters.
Who could ask for more?
