actually, in this case, the 'sometimes y' rule is in affect, making y a vowel

nope. "a, e, i, o, u, and sometimes y". the rule with 'y' is that if there is no other vowel in the word, then 'y' automaticly becomes a vowel

Actually, "y" is a consonant in those cases where it makes a sound where air coming from the lungs is blocked by the mouth or throat--as in "you" or "beyond". The words "yay" and "joyously" are examples of y being used as both a consonant and a vowel.

well sometimes "y" can be considered a vowel so no there is not

"y" will never ever be a vowel;.. a, e, i , o u and nothing else.

...but still disagree -- did you notice "can be" regarded? It's not, it sure sound like a vowel (like in rhythm) but it's NOT a vowel. They didn't say it is...

dude this is elementary school work and they taught you in elementary it can sometimes be applied as a vowel

Excellent!

Are those real words?

Warning: Killjoy alert!
The crwth is a stringed instrument of Welch origin. The word is Welch and - sadly - in Welch, w is a legitimate vowel. But if any ever asks me that question, crwth is going to be my answer. Thanks.

Only onomatopoeia slang. For example, "hmmmm?" for the sound of a person thinking, or "Mmmmm!" the yummy sound.

Real words have a vowel, or the "sometimes Y" vowel.

Sometimes "Y". I know there's discord on the rule: A E I O U and sometimes Y. I myself believe in that rule. Others are free not to.
