Janet, each subsequent word should have at least two letters of the last consonant in the previous word. Thus, "bidden" should be followed by a word with at least two n's, as in...



nanotechnology



Now the next word should have at least two g's (or two y's, i suppose)

It's been a long debate, if Y is a consonant or vowel. In English grammar it's counted as a consonant, but in most I've seen it is used as a vowel. Like in here. Therefore I continue my next word with G.

JJ, I agree -- y is most often used as a vowel, as in all -logy words

If the letter 'y' is used as a vowel in the previous word, like in 'pastry', I don't double it in the next word.

But if the letter 'y' is used as a consonant in the previous word, like in 'joy', I double it in the next word.

How on earth is Y used as consonant in "joy"?

You, York... But in misery, pretty...
