Rictameter of the Day: X for X-ray

X for X-ray

Well-known x word
With just two syllables.
Then we have Xerox (famous brand),
Xebec (graceful sailing ship), xenon (gas)
And xylem (plant tissue). Why so
Few x words, rare letter?
Glad we have you,

Hmm, you sent me straight to online research for "xebec." What beautiful vessels. Thanks for the new word.
