List of 5 Letter Words that end in AO

While I was looking for the 5 letter words that end in A O, I was astonished to see that there aren’t too many English words that fall under this category.

To be honest, I was a bit disappointed as I was expecting a bit more collection of 5-letter words ending in A O as these are two popular vowels used widely all over the other English words but I guess, it is what it is. Right?

Although, different websites give different numbers of 5-letter English words ending in AO such as this website but I’ll share the results from the dictionary that I’m using.

In fact, an interesting aspect that I noted is that while on the search result on Google, the snippet shows way more results of such 5-letter words but when you actually log on to the website, it is literally showing just a couple of them.

The reason behind this “dichotomy” is that many words that you see on the search result aren’t part of the English language and are proper nouns. The website has probably included them to give an image that there are a bunch of them so that it looks good on the search engine results page.

Slight Change in My Format

Anyway, my dictionary has a few more words than just 2 so taking advantage of the little data, instead of digging down deep and bombarding you with bland statistics that I normally do in my 5-letter Words series, I’ll change my format a bit and provide you the meanings of these words instead.

You can literally memorize them in just one sitting.

WordsType of WordMeaning
CacaoNounA small evergreen tree (Theobroma Cacao) of South America and the West Indies. Its fruit contains an edible pulp inclosing seeds about the size of an almond from which cocoa chocolate and broma are prepared.
ChiaoNounChinese monetary unit to 1/10th of Yuan
LakaoNounSap green pigment
LocaoNounA green vegetable dye imported from China
MacaoNounAlthough my dictionary says it’s a “Macaw”, a breed of parrot but I couldn’t verify it from the internet. It’s also a Portuguese overseas territory in South China so not exactly the part of English language

Final Thoughts

Before concluding, let’s just summarize what learning points we can derive from this article:

  • There aren’t too many 5-letter English words that end in AO. There I said it again and the reason I’m repeating again is…
  • That unless the NY Times Daily Wordle starts with C, L or M, you can rest assured that today’s Wordle won’t end with AO, therefore, you can think of some other words.
  • Extrapolating this, you can apply the same wisdom for the letters on the 2nd and 3rd positions as well.
