You may get more words by searching.
From my own personal dictionary, including lots of arcane, obsolete, and dubious entries:
Longest: 6
Funny how many of these seem to be Germanic in origin.

Here's the code I used:

#!/your/perl/here # find word with most consecutive vowels and/or consonants use strict; use warnings; # treat y as a vowel, not a consonant my $VOWELS = qr/([aeiouy]+)/i; my $CONSONANTS = qr/([b-df-hj-np-tv-xz]+)/i; my $longest_vowels = {}; my $longest_consonants = {}; while (<>) { # only lower case (no proper names) # only single words next unless /^[a-z]+$/; $longest_vowels = find_longest( $_, $VOWELS, $longest_vowe +ls ); $longest_consonants = find_longest( $_, $CONSONANTS, $longest_cons +onants ); } foreach my $record ($longest_vowels, $longest_consonants) { my $length = (keys %{$record})[0]; print "($length) ", join( '', sort @{$record->{$length}}), "\n"; } ###################### # given word, regex, and hashref, # return a hashref with words having the longest consecutive regex mat +ch # hash should only have 1 key (longest length run), # hash value is array of words with "length" run sub find_longest { my $word = shift; my $regex = shift; my $previous = shift; # hashref # only one key should exist my ($length) = (keys %{$previous})[0] or 0; # find all matches in the current word my @matches = $word =~ /$regex/g; # reverse sort matches by length @matches = sort { length($b) <=> length($a) } @matches; foreach my $match ( @matches ) { # no more interesting matches? last if ($length > length($match)); # equal length, add to list if ( $length == length($match) ) { push @{$previous->{$length}}, $word; } else # new length, start new list { $length = length($match); $previous = { $length => [$word] }; } # uncomment to watch it run # print STDERR "$regex) ($length) $word"; } return $previous; }

    [Corion]: Yay. Traditional finance situation averted. Bonds can be quoted in amounts (1_000_000 EUR) or per unit (1 unit). And a traditional error is to trade 2_000_000 piece when you meant to trade 2_000_000 EUR.
    [Corion]: (one of my scripts simply catches high amounts and I phone people making that trade, ideally before the payment is due)
    [Corion]: The sad thing is that my script sits at the end of the pipeline and can only look at the payments due today or tomorrow basically, while there are many more systems further up in the pipeline
    [GotToBTru]: better late than never, I guess
    [Corion]: GotToBTru: Sure - there is a long and sad story of many frantic cleanups that led us to implement this notification ;)
