5-letter words ending with EL you don’t want to be called
There are certain 5-letter words ending with EL that are considered cruel and derogatory. Here are a few of them:
Incel. This nasty label is a portmanteau of “involuntary” and “celibate.” It’s mostly used to refer to an adult heterosexual male who’s unable to find a romantic relationship or sexual partner.
Losel. Apparently, the word loser has a more twisted twin in losel, which means a worthless person.
Yokel. An uneducated or dim-witted countryside person lacking sophistication is called a yokel. Another term for this is bumpkin.
A list where Babel is
The word babel means “a confused noise made by a number of voices.” Its origins can be traced back to the ancient Hebrew times when people spoke a unified language.
In the book of Genesis, God decided to make the people building the Tower of Babel speak different languages, making collaboration virtually impossible. This resulted in the abandonment of the tower’s construction, eventually leading to the structure’s complete ruin.
