# What rule did I use to split the alphabet [duplicate]

I have split the alphabet into two sets using a rule:

• A E F H I L M N O R S X
• B C D G J K P Q T U V W Y Z

What is the rule?

• this actually just gave me an idea for a puzzle... not quite sure on yours though off the bat... gave it a few tries but I have to run. Mar 8, 2016 at 19:21
• @JulianRosen Doesn't look like a duplicate, as mine has a different division rule. Mar 8, 2016 at 20:13
• The linked puzzle has a list of 14 divisions, yours is number 10 on the list. Mar 8, 2016 at 20:18
• Hm, I didn't see that. Should I remove this question? Mar 8, 2016 at 21:40
• Don't remove this question. Leaving duplicates is better, makes it easier for people to find the first version. Plus there's an answer here already Mar 8, 2016 at 21:46

The rule is

The top set when spelled would start with a vowel and the bottom set would start with a consonant. For example x would be spelled ex(vowel) and z would be spelled zee(consonant)
