Are you in the midst of a game of Internet Scrabble and desperately searching for some three letter words beginning with the letter Q? Well, a few such words exist, although they are not extremely common. You might already know a couple of them, or you may have seen them in passing. Since there are so few, we will also go into the definitions of each of the words.
Three letter words beginning with the letter Q are quite rare. However, for your entertainment and enjoyment, we now present you with this rare collection!
That's it! Those are the only words that fulfill the requirements of having both three letters and start with the letter q. Have you seen any of those words before? Do you think you know what they mean? Well, get your guesses in now before we give you the definitions.
The following is a list of the definitions that we listed just for you.
Are you wondering why there is such a shortage of words on this list? It's a completely understandable question. So many words exist in the English language, that you think there would be more of these short words in it! However, let's think about the letter Q for a moment now, shall we? Chances are, you are quite aware that the letter Q is usually followed by the letter U in words. Of course, that is not the case with half of the words on the list. Yet it is still a fairly standard convention when the letter Q is used.
Therefore, coming up with three letter words that start with Q is difficult, because if you need to have "qu," then almost the entire word has already been created in those first two letters. If you add another letter, either a vowel or a consonant after "qu" the maximum number of words you could create is 26 since that is the number of letters in the English alphabet.
