The Walloons are a French-speaking people from Belgium.
The word, 'Walloon' contains two consecutive double letters, a double 'L' followed by a double 'O'.
There is only one word in English that contains three consecutive double letters. It is not an uncommon word.
Do you know what it is?
[posed to me by chib, there are at least two possible answers but the root is the same]
Well, one of the words is bookkeeper. I assume the other is bookkeeping.
