Woolly, adj. – Having a fluffy character or appearance appears to fit PHONETICALLY when spelled “double U, double O double L, Y”

TATTOOEE is another, and it doesn’t need to have any hyphens removed!

Balloonning is also correct, right?

The word “tattooee” is listed at en.wiktionary.org and http://www.yourdictionary.com. It is defined as one who receives a tattoo. A “tattooer” is the one who does the tattoos.

It is the shortest English word with three consecutive double-letters.

how about “aggressiveness”,”addressee”, “barrenness”, “Chattahoochee” (a river in northern Georgia), “heedlessness”, “committee”, and the great favourite “Mississippi”, but all this word playing looking for triple letters and triple doubles has led to my “sleeplessness”, but my “stubbornness” drives me ever on either “unsuccessfully” or “successfully” there’s a few triple doubles in that lot and triple letter words belllike crosssection godessship headonessship those are often hyphenated but triple letters none the less.theres lots of sesquipedalian words i adore too . enjoy..

my last list i forgot you wanted consecutive triple letters so ok try “Kallooppara” The land of Kallooppara was previously known by the name of Perumbranadu, or Vellooppara is a small village place in the Kollam District of Kerala, but how about SUBBOOKKEEPER theres 4 doubles there , or sweettoothed or is that sweet-toothed hyphenated

Nope, it doesn’t have any consecutive double letters (the “i” separates them).

Tennessee, Committee, Mississippi,Aggressiveness. I didn’t know that “tattooee” ever existed in the English vocabulary

@Carol None of those words have three consecutive double letters.

Tattooee is not actually in the dictionary sadly. Wiki is not a reliable source considering anyone can add or discard things there.

Tattooee – Not a word

All the other examples are either misspelled (like “balloonning” which is actually ballooning) or not CONSECUTIVE which is what makes bookkeeper unique.

Obviously “Woolen” (with its double U) is a play on words and therefore invalid.

Not sure where ‘o’ comes before ‘k’ and ‘e’ in the English alphabet if the question is asking for consecutive double letters?

Dan says

@Lyn Not sure why you are talking about the alphabet. Are you confusing consecutive with alphabetical?
