Inspired by Avi's Vowelburger™ Riddle
Vowelburgers™ announced their Penta-decker Vowelburger™ two days ago and added to their menu yesterday. For today's burger, they decided to bring back in part some features of the first burger but still keeping the form of the second. A Six-layer Vowelburger™ means seven consonant buns sandwiching six vowel patties as shown:


Here is the menu's description of the new burger:

Layer Vowelburger™
1 J
2 dwelling
3 multitude
4 stone
5 canvas
6 diffusion

Can you identify what type this burger is from the description on the menu?


  • The full name of this burger contains layers 1-6 from left to right.

  • Eating the Six-layer Vowelburger™ is like eating 6 regular* Vowelburgers™ merged with each other; in other words, the top of the first layer is the bottom of the next.

  • There are no add-ons. Every layer is a regular Vowelburger™ on its own. Some layers, however, may be shortened forms.

*The word "regular" here means a bottom bun, single patty, and a top bun.

We hope this burger will lift your spirits in this difficult time. Stay healthy! (We deliver.)


1 Answer 1


I think you are



REH, an Arabic-alphabet letter which looks a bit like a Latin-alphabet J.


HAB, short for habitation.


BIL, short for billion.


LIT, which apparently can mean the same thing as "stoned" in drug slang.


TAT, meaning "make (a decorative mat or edging) by tying knots in thread and using a small shuttle to form lace" - which relates to canvas.


TED, meaning "turn over and spread out (grass, hay, or straw) to dry or for bedding" - I guess this is diffusing the straw?

  • $\begingroup$ Great job, that's the answer! Although, only #2 and #3 have the intended explanations, The other 4 are full words (not shortened forms), $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 19, 2020 at 23:07
  • $\begingroup$ @eyl327 Edited, but I'm still stuck on J. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 19, 2020 at 23:56
