I thought "y" was a vowel there, rotavator is a palindrome.

the idea that y is sometimes a vowel always seemed so asinine to me.  Why not just say most words need vowels, but not rhythm

Matt LaFleur: Aaron Rodgers will play 'a quarter or so' on Thursday vs. Baltimore

I was listening to this 24/7 Packers thing today and it plays all the interviews. I found out Matt calls the GM "Gutey"

I'm sure everyone but me knew that, but that's funny to me.

We can accept that case but it still seems like Y is performing the role of a vowel in eg. “ally” or “very”, where it produces sounds that are in other cases made by unambiguous vowels

The idea is supposed to be that every syllable needs a vowel.

then what is going on in the THM part of rhy-THM?

It's just one of those things that is always gonna have exceptions. 

Unless you have to buy a "y" on wheel of fortune for ver"y" and not for "y"ellow, I will take my free spin and solve the puzzle Pat:

"Very Obvious That Phonics Makes No Sense"

English is super weird when it comes to syllables imo. I just searched syllables for rythm because I wasn't sure if it's one or two and I found this:

How many syllables in rhythm?

  1 syllable

Divide rhythm into syllables:   rhythm
How to pronounce rhythm:   rith-um

Dafuq?

I thought the same but it turns out it's one syllable. English is for weirdos

Rhythm is technically one syllable

which is incredibly dumb.  What's the word for the separations in how you say a word if not syllable?

To me, saying rhythm has 2 syllables is perfectly cromulent.  It has 2 sounds.
