One cup of coffee and Qu.

February 9, 2010

I made it through high school, two undergraduate degrees, marriage, and a Master’s program without ever drinking a drop of coffee.  Then there came children.  Now I drink a cup of coffee roughly this size each morning.

I can’t think of a single word in English that has a “q” without a “u.”  Can you?


  1. Qi or now with QWERTY.

  2. Burqa, qiana, sheqel, yaqona, umiaq and of course, many more.

    • Nicely done. I have always seen the last one spelled as “umiak” but a quick google search showed me it can also be spelled with a “q” as you have done. I’ll bet nobody wants to play you scrabble. 🙂
