Five english words that are utterly unique

Amazingly, the only English word with three Y's also happens to describe a rare astronomical event involving three heavenly bodies. A syzygy is the alignment of three celestial bodies in a straight line, commonly the earth,the sun and the moon
This past tense of dream possesses a very special quality.The only verb in regular english usage to end with -mt. we hear from people constantly who swear there must be another term ending in -mt. No one has ever actually offered a second example ,however.
The sole term in the english language to begin with tm- ,has an unusual meaning to match. Tmesis is the insertion of one or more words between the words that make up a compound phrase, as in "what-so-ever" inserted in the middle of "what-ever".
Only one word in all of English has an X, Y, and Z in order. Hydroxyzine.This medication developed in the 1950s can help calm you down and prevent sneezing.
queue is the only word whose pronunciation remains the same when the last four letters are removed.Before it meant a line, a queue referred to the tail of a beast in medieval pictures and designs. The unusual spelling owes its origin to French, like many words that look a little odd in English. Prior to the Frenchification of queue, Latin spelled it simply as coda. The duplication of U and E often feels like waiting in line.
