Silence at the end
Writing or spelling 5-letter words that end with ET is easy enough. Pronouncing them, however, is a different story. To help you avoid embarrassment, we made this cheat sheet telling you the following words are pronounced with a silent T.
Note that “valet” can be pronounced with a T. This is particularly true if it’s used to refer to an Old English manservant.
Small stuff in 5-letter words ending with ET
What do you call a baby owl? What about a small island? If your answers are “owlet” and “islet,” respectively, then you’re right on the money! There’s also “inlet,” which refers to a small arm of the sea (think bay or lagoon).
What about “bowet?” It certainly isn’t a small decorative bow nor a tiny version of that stringed weapon Cupid uses to stoke the flames of romance between a man and a woman. No, what it is is a young hawk, especially one that’s in the phase of vacating its nest of birth.
