arrogance --> concert --> buttress

A problem with this game is becoming apparent, and that is the letter 'y', which everyone is conveniently defining as a vowel although it is traditionally considered as a consonant. So for our purposes it's a vowel, yes? There are only so many words with two 'y's after all.

I regard 'y' as a vowel when it is pronounced as such.

(I wonder whose concert it was?)
((I also suppose y is a vowel in lily, messy, and wallaby...)

S, on the other hand is always considered as a consonant, like in the end of bobbles ;-)

Did you just make 'concert' up, or am I the only one who can't see it?

edit: I thought for a minute that I had just killed the game, if we're back to the strict set of original rules, but then I realized there are at least a couple of "contrived" words with a doubled x. Whew ...
