Double Letters at the Front (Posted on 2005-07-11) Difficulty: 1 of 5
There are a number of common words in the English language which start with a double letter, such as ooze and eerie, but these start with vowels.

Can you think of a common word in the English language which starts with a double consonant?

What you are saying makes sense.  HOWEVER, if that's the case, the question is not written correctly.  A double consonant does not involve two different constants.  It involves two constants repeating.  I speak Spanish, and we have two double consonants.

If the question read "Can you think of a common word in the English language which starts with a two consonants?", then it would be correct.  However, "th" is not a double consonant.
