Hi DW. What English word uses only one vowel but uses it five times in the word? Thanks
I found the following sixteen words in the Lexis database that fit your description: abracadabra, taramasalata, beekeeper, beetleweed, defenselessness, defervescence, effervescence, enfeeblement, freewheeled, freewheeler, greenskeeper, reemergence, sneezeweed, telemetered, disinhibiting, primitivistic.

According to the American Heritage Dictionary taramasalata is " A Greek appetizer consisting of a light paste of fish roe, olive oil, lemon juice, and moistened bread crumbs or mashed potatoes.

Thanks for an interesting question. I was surprised there were so many.
