Imperialism
Important
Impressive

Words so far that don't match the rule:

It's just a coincidence that only words beginning with vowels have been bolded so far. The rule has nothing to do with whether the letters are vowels or consonants.

Got it, I think.

Hint:
Spoiler:
It looks to me like the kind of words that pass are either early in the alphabet, or very long.
Not a single word beginning with a,b,c or d has been rejected, and the only one to pass from the second half of the alphabet is ridiculously long.


So the rule is:
Spoiler:
The length of the word must be at least the equivalent of the initial letter (a=1, b=2 etc.) - So all words beginning with a, all words beginning with b that have two or more letters, all words beginning with c that have three or more letters, ... and all words that begin with z and have 26 or more letters (are there any??). Presumably if the initial letter isn't a letter of the roman alphabet it counts as not matching.

Exactly right. SteelCamel, it's your turn to think of a rule.

Spoiler:
My logic for not highlighting the non-alphabetical ones was:
If a -> 1, b -> 2, etc., then the value for anything else is undefined. You can't be greater than or equal to an undefined value, so the condition isn't met.

OK, I've thought of a rule. And for a start, I'll answer Lawsome's post for my new rule.

Handed

Habitats
Habitably

(no, it's not "words with more than 9 letters"..)

There's some duplicates here - a word that matches the rule always matches, regardless of where/when/by whom it was posted, and a word that doesn't match always doesn't match. The rule isn't case-sensitive either.
