What's the longest word you can find using one row on your boat keyboard?

Asked by ucme (47350points) December 12th, 2014

Based on a standard QWERTY layout.
You may use any letters in your row of choice twice.
I got a Bo Derek…10 (will reveal when replicated)
Thought about putting this in General then came to my senses :D

I always heard that “typewriter” was that word in English.

I thought I was being clever, but not only is typewriter pretty much universally known, its not even the fucking longest!!!

Well you can pretty much just pick the first row, unless you speak Uruk Hai or something.

So, in the name of immaturity and unfounded rebellion, I pick the middle row with the word ’‘ass’’. :D

Not a bad idea, @Symbeline to eschew the first row for the second. So sticking with the second row, the longest appears to be flask without digging into words that are truly obscure, or, more likely, archaic.

And if we switch to the bottom row, we can go with Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

The bottom row doesn’t have any vowels so that is out. The middle row only has one vowel (A) so that’s out. It would have to be from the top row.

@talljasperman
the middle row has a, ö and ä

@ragingloli Not on my keyboard… You must have one of the freaky foreign keyboards.

ragingloli's avatar

your keyboard is obviously of an inferior race

talljasperman's avatar

@ragingloli I thought the same for your keyboard. agree to disagree.
