Bookkeeper, bookkeeping, bookkeepers are three. There are other words that have hyphons in them that are considered by some to have three consecutive double letters. Some examples are deer-reeve, feed-door, and heel-footed. These words are not widely considered as having three consecutive double letters. The argument can be made to suport them however. Just thought I’d explain a little. :)

Will says

I know they are normally called tattooist but If I am not mistaken TATTOOEE is an alternative name.


Luke says

Tattooee would imply someone recieving a tattoo, Not someone giving one. However It’s still not a word

They’re not consecutive – there’s an i between the mm and ttee.

Aside from bookkeeper and bookkeeping, the following words with three consecutive double letters are allowed though you may not find them in the dictionary: bookkeepers, bookkeepings, bookkeep ( v. infinitive form), bookkeeps ( v. s- form). Should these be considered, bookkeepings is the longest English word with three consecutive double letters and the bookkeep is the shortest.

expand the question to 3 sets of double letters and take out proper names. “committee,” “unsuccessfully,” “successfully” and “whippoorwill” would be included.

“heel-footed.”

Huh? It doesn’t even have three double letters!

@Luke: “However It’s still not a word”

Who says? I find it in several dictionaries.

I can’t believe how many people aren’t paying attention to the consecutive part?

Everyone missed the bookkeeper’s assistant: the subbookkeeper. And the guy who takes chances while repairing your roof: the rooffool. And the guy not using caution when diving into Australia’s coral: a reeffool.
