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 adheres to a certain rule I call it a 21 + 3113 Word™.

enter image description here

Text-only version in CSV form:


Not sure why they’re called what they are yet, but

21 + 3113 Words all have no enclosures in the word (for example, A and O have an enclosure but E, I, U do not.) Non-21+3113 Words have at least one enclosure.

A possible solution could be that

21, 3, 11, 3 translates to U-CKC; neither 21, 3113, U, or CKC have any enclosures either.

Thanks to @Stiv for noticing that

21 + 3113 translates to U+3113, which is the Unicode for this symbol which also doesn’t have any enclosures.
