Encyclopedia Brown covered this question. Bookkeeper is one. Is it the only one?

Ok, here's a different trivia bit, but if you like word trivia in this vein: a word that contains all of the vowels in teh english language, only once each: sequoia

facetious as well
Evan's avatar
both of those leaves out Y, which is thoroughly neglectful, albeit moderately trivial.

to occ and tuvald: not only does facetious have every vowel, but they are in order "a, e, i, o, u"

Very interestering that bookkeeper is an answer to one of Tim Tang's test questions. Wish I had read this before torturing myself on level #5.

facetiously, then, has every vowel, including y, in order.
