Y is currently classified as a consonant. But it has borne this unfair classification long enough! Y is a vowel, a statement that is proved by its distinctive sound,a soft, vowel-like noise that is shared by no other consonants, not even F, L or S. All we at the Y: Am I Not A Vowel group believe most fervently in Y being a vowel. It is so apparent to even the most ignorant and blinkered of observers. Some even believe Y was once a vowel, now relegated to consonant status by a snobbish literary elite. But now we will right this wrong, and grant Y the voweldom it deserves! Just sign this petition, and all we have worked for will become reality.
