I can think of some parts needed to detect a word with no vowels in it, but can't figure out the whole thing (it's early!)..

I was thinking something along the lines of,

(\w[^a|e|i|o|u])

But thats not it...

You rock!
Thanks

Stupid of me, ofcourse [^a|e|i|o|u] is a class so no OR | needed..

Ok, so your regex says

Non word characters - No aeiou At least once - Non word character

It doesn't make sense to me? It works, but I'd like to understand it too..

eg

<script>
reg=new RegExp(/\W[^aeiou]+\W/)
alert(" abcd " + "\n" +reg.test(" abcd "))
alert(" wxyz " + "\n" +reg.test(" wxyz "))
</script>

It says

Non word characters - a sequence of non aeiou's   - Non word character

ie having a vowel between the nonword chars returns false
