# What is an Unbeecoming Word™?

This is in the spirit of the What is a Word/Phrase™ series started by JLee with a special brand of Phrase™ and Word™ puzzles.

If a word conforms to a special rule, I call it a Unbeecoming Word™.

Use the following examples below to find the rule.

• Should the right hand column be labelled "beecoming words"? :) – IanF1 Nov 21 '15 at 23:37
• @IanF1 I did think about that but I already had the Beecumming puzzle in mind and didn't want to confuse them. – Engineer Toast Nov 23 '15 at 13:25

don't include letters that are sounded with an ee when said: BCDEGPTVZ (bee, see, dee ...). Hence, unbeecoming.
• I like that there is no Z on either side of the list, to accommodate those who pronounce it either "zed" or "zee". – GentlePurpleRain Oct 24 '15 at 4:35
