Word Ways


In "Near-Alternating Vowels and Consonants" in the August 2000 issue of Word Ways, A. Ross Eckler exhibited English words for all but three of the 178 distinct ways one can assign consonants and vowels to ten-letter words so that there are no more than two consonants or two vowels in succession. In the following, I demonstrate that one can find Dutch examples for all 178 patterns. For the VVCCVVCCVV pattern I could find only one Dutch word.
