not AND, but EITHER, OR.

I don't want a word that has no vowels AND rhymes with orange, I'm asking for a word that has no vowels OR rhymes with orange.

Crwth.

It's an ancient celtic string instrument.

Also, syzygy; the alignment of three celestial bodies. In the sun-earth-moon system, syzygy occurs at the full and new moons.

As for syzygy, there is 3 Y's in it and "Y" can sometimes be a vowel... so I think that word technically has a vowel.

Same for Crwth. "W" can be a vowel too.

So I challenge the 7 billion people in the world, find a English word that does not contain the letters A, E, I, O, U, Y or W.

Y is not a vowel. It can sometimes stand in for one, sure, but it's not a vowel.

And w is definitely not a vowel in any circumstances.

Both w and y are vocoids, or semivowels, they have phonetic characteristics similar to vowels, but their phonology classifies them as consonants.
