The English word FACETIOUS(LY) has all the vowels A E I O U (and Y) in the correct alphabebetical order.
I know two similar English words that do the same.

How many can you find in English or Spanish?

La palabra inglesa FACETIOUS(LY) tiene todas las vocales A E I O U (y Y) en el orden correcto alfabebetico.

Sé dos similares palabras ingleses ¿Cuántas se puede encontrar en inglés o español?

En español hay varias... pero ninguna se me ocurre con las vocales en orden... murciélago, aeronáutica, eucalipto, abuelito, ecuación... ¿se valen las palabras donde la "u" no suena? (Arquetipo, estanquillo, cosquillear...)

@Bob: es necesario tener tiempo libre.

En español, las palabras que contienen todas las vocales se llaman "pentavocálicas" o "panvocálicas". Las palabras en cuyo interior las vocales se hallan ordenadas, se denominan "alfabético-vocálicas", frente a las "alfabético-vocálicas inversas", cuyo orden es inverso.

No conozco ninguna palabra española panvocálica que sea a la vez alfabético-vocálica (hay de cuatro vocales, como "transgredidos"), pero sí alfabético-vocálica inversa: suboccidental o sudorífera, por ejemplo.
