"U say: " AEGILOPS (alternate spelling of egilops, an ulcer in a part of the eye) is apparently the longest word in W2 which consists of letters in alphabetical order ..."
I say : How about FACETIOUS ( one letter more) or even better FACETIOUSLY ( here even Y is counted as an vowel). "
But putting those into alphabetic order makes
ACEFIOSTU and ACEFILOSTUY respectively--not the order of the words themselves. Only the vowels of those words had been in alphabetic order, not all the letters.
