Czechs can pronounce words containing no vowels at all.For example, “prst” means “finger”, čtvrt is “quarter“ and krk means “neck”. So why .?

Update:

...so why don't English people criticise them for it, like they do with the Welsh language, they say we have no vowels when Welsh actually has MORE vowels than English?

    English also has words with no vowels, including brr, grr, hmm, pfft, pst and shh. Anyone who criticizes another language for silly reasons like that is just being bigoted.

      Aren't all words just sounds written down? All of those have meaning, are listed in the dictionary, and are accepted in the game of Scrabble.

    Some languages have the vowels sound already in their other letters. 

    Even the Jewish Language that GOD gave to Jewish is this way!

      In modern Hebrew though, the dots aren't there, only in classical/Biblical Hebrew. You just learn how to pronounce a word.
