Considering that consonants make up three-quarters of the letters in English, it only makes sense that consonant words abound. Of course, almost all English words contain at least one vowel. And so, when you’re thinking about consonant words examples, you’re probably looking for words that are mostly consonants with few vowels. Let the RHYTHM move you as you glide between GLYPHS and words. Read more about consonant words.

More About Consonant Words
Consonant words come in handy when you’ve got a shortage of vowels in games like Words With Friends®. Hunt for open vowels on the current game board to find opportunities to play your consonant letter tiles. For the purposes of this consonant words list, the letter Y is being treated as the exception.
So, while there are consonant words examples like CWMS and PFFT with no vowels at all, many other words include a Y. More common examples include HYMN and MYTH. When you’re struggling to play your consonant letter tiles, it’s helpful to think about consonant clusters. That’s when you have two or more consonants with no vowel in between. In the word GRAPH, both GR and PH are consonant clusters. When you can hear individual sounds, you can call it a consonant blend.
A list of consonant words like this can really make you go HMM. There’s no need to go quiet with a SHH when you have words with no vowels at your disposal. On the exact opposite end of the spectrum are vowel words. Just as you can get stuck with no vowels in Scrabble®, having nothing but vowels can be equally challenging.
