Odd Start, Even Finish
What three letter English word has an odd start, an even finish and an infinitely long middle?
The word vex. “v” is Roman numeral 5, which is odd. “x” is Roman numeral 10, which is even. “e” is the base of the natural logarithm and is irrational (e = 2.718281828…). Its mantissa (the part to the right of the decimal point) is infinitely long.

I was going to say fox, because when capitalized F has uneven lines making it odd, o is a circle which never ends, and x has even lines.
