Rhythm was the long word I remember being used at school to indicate how Y has to qualify as a vowel sometimes.
If you start to look at the Welsh language you'll find many more longer words that qualify! Which brings us to: did Arthur Ransome ever go to Wales? Does any character in his books mention Wales? It is a pretty green place full of hills that I'm sure he would have loved.
But I only recall England, Scotland/Hebrides and the Isle of Man being mentioned. The Scilly Isles are referenced in a song lyric.
Nothing of Wales? Ireland? Jersey?
