The OED (first edition, I have not checked second) says that
"M" is a sometimes a vowel. That's a high enough authority for
me.

Incidentally, the only other letter not commonly considered
a vowel that the OED mentions functions is one is "J" in very
rare instances, such as in HALLELUJAH.

'M' is not a vowel in "rhythm". Vowels do not involve obstructive movements, like pressing the tongue or closing the mouth.

Try to pronounce the "M" in "rhythm" without closing your mouth. You can't, so it's a consonant.

The vowel page (#6) omits mentioning that M is sometimes a
vowel in English. Pretty big omission, considering how few
people realize it. That page even mentions:

PSYCHORHYTHMS (W2) is the longest word with only one vowel, ignoring Y [Stuart Kidd].


Forgeting that M is acting as a vowel in that context. (It
provides the sound for the final syllable.)

You can achieve this word by progressively, in turn, adding on "buta" to "zone," then "phen," then "oxy." I suspect the odds of this happening, while also getting the max point value, are very low, even when played annually for all the time in the universe to date.
