Quiz Playlist
More Info:
  • All 26 letters have spelled-out word names, and that is the order this quiz is looking for. The five vowels' names are all one-letter words: a, e, i, o, and u. The 21 consonants, however, have longer names; e.g. 'B' is 'bee'. To avoid confusion: 'Q' has four different allowable spellings but this quiz uses "cue", the most common per the OED. The eighth letter is pronounced as in North America and (usually) the UK, beginning with a vowel phoneme -- NOT with the extra consonant phoneme found in Australia and New Zealand. The first comment lists the 26 words.
