User:Gilgamesh/List of monosyllabic English words
This is a list of English words with only one syllable. Some words may have alternative (perhaps primary) pronunciations with more than one syllable. Not including common regular inflected forms such as plurals and participles, unless they're pronounced irregularly. The word squirrelled is given special mention as the longest-spelt monosyllabic word in English, though it is spelt squirreled in North America.
