## More About Words With Q and U

The fun thing about QU words is that you can form words by adding any of the other four vowels after it. Take the letter A, for example. This gives you words like QUARTER and EQUATE. Move on to the letter E and you can make Q words like QUESTION and TOQUE. Do you see how words with Q and U don’t have to start with those two letters? They can show up in the middle too, though no words end in QU.

Following the same pattern with the letters I and O produces even more Scrabble® words with Q and U. They can come in QUITE handy, even if you keep QUIET about them. But, don’t just QUOTE us on that! Lay down your letter tiles like the lumber of a mighty SEQUOIA tree. It’s easy enough to QUANTIFY the QUALITY of your efforts, piling on those points with QU words like no one’s business.

When you’re ready to continue your exploration of words with the letter Q, you may want to direct your attention toward much rarer beasts. They are nowhere near as numerous, but words with Q and no U can really rescue you out of a pinch. From practicing QIGONG to spelling out the QWERTY, you’ve got Q words to play even if you don’t have a U to go with it.
