A special word (Posted on 2003-01-14) Difficulty: 2 of 5
There is something special about the English word "facetiously".

Can you tell what it is?

Can you find any other words with this special property?

It contains all 5 vowels, as well as the sometimes "y", and in alphabetic order. Thanks to f.l. for another word for the solution - abstemiously - though i've no clue what it means
