: : Besides all ending in the letter "y" what do the words decay, enemy, essay, excellency, expediency and ivy have in common?

: : Math class trivia

: : my thoughts - all are nouns or can all the words also be used before or after the word "common"?
: : Such as common enemy, common ivy

In each word one vowel is followed by two consecutive consonants.

: "Common" can't be the answer; it doesn't go with all of them.
