“Which word am I?
“Three letters long, I begin with two vowels and end in a single consonant. My two vowels are in reverse alphabetical order, and my single consonant lies at the alphabetical midpoint between them.
“When translated into German, I lose my middle letter but gain an umlaut. When I’m translated into Italian, my second and third letters are switched, and my first letter repeated in a new fourth position.”
