Euouae or Evovae is an abbreviation used in Latin Psalters and other liturgical books to show the distribution of syllables in the differential or variable melodic endings of the standard Psalm tones of Gregorian chant. It derives from the vowels in the words “saeculorum Amen” of the lesser doxology or Gloria Patri, which ends with the phrase In saecula saeculorum, Amen.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, at six letters long, “Euouae” is the longest word in the English language made up of nothing but vowels, and also the English word with the most consecutive vowels.
