Have a little fun, and check out these unusual word facts.

This post serves no purpose other than to allow people a moment to say, "Hmm." And sometimes that's a good thing. Enjoy!

  • 'Stewardesses' is the longest word typed with only the left hand.

  • And 'lollipop' is the longest word typed with your right hand.

  • No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple.

  • 'Dreamt' is the only English word that ends in the letters 'mt'.

  • The sentence: 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog' uses every letter of the alphabet. (Do you remember typing that in typing class?)

  • There are only four words in the English language which end in 'dous': tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous.

  • The words 'racecar,' 'kayak' and 'level' are the same whether they are read left to right or right to left (palindromes).

  • There are two words in the English language that have all five vowels in order: 'abstemious' and 'facetious.' (Yes, admit it, you are saying, a e i o u)

  • TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters only on one row of the keyboard.

  • A 'jiffy' is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second.

Have a happy week friends, and if you need some good conversation starters for your next party, feel free to borrow some of the fun facts above.
