more weird words ...
So, bonanova, isn't this thing solved yet?
You have got
2) strengths OR Stretched
4) angsts OR Witchcraft
Well, but senescence is wrong answer, i can't find angsts in dictionary(there's only angst),and latchstring is actually latch-string
I think it's solved. Each of these were mentioned on one post or another:
- strengths, stretched
- [angsts] witchcraft lengths strengths
- latchstring [hyphen is optional]
- facetiously abstemiously
- indivisibility [indivisibilities if you want to show off - it has7 occurrences of i]

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
#1 cant be senescene because it has to have a single non repeated vowel

7) indivisibility, following the last hint, or indivisibilities which has 7

There is one word of which I know which contains the vowels a, e, i, o and u once each only, but in reverse alphabetical order. What is more I have actually seen the word used in The Times.
- Bertrand Russell

Spoiler for here are a few of those (reverse vowel order)
That really is an impressive list. Many thanks.

Even if "subbookkeeper" were a word, which I am most sure it is not a word of common English usage, it would be hyphenated as
sub-bookkeeper to be grammatically correct.
What does grammar have to do with it? Whether it's hyphenated or not doesn't change the meaning. Hyphenation would simply allow quicker identification, and avoid confusion with similar words where sub- was not a prefix. (Examples?)
And if it needs to be hyphenated, you could make a case that bookkeeper should be "book-keeper" or even "book keeper" (ignoring the common usage card).

I think the rule for counting "y" as a vowel is that it makes the sound of a vowel, and it adds a syllable to the word.
rhyth·mics has two syllables, and the first syllable is formed by the sound of the y.
Rhythm has 2 syllables, so is 'm' a vowel too?

Again, brain teasers of sorts ...
