The Letter W

The-Letter-WThe letter W makes the sound heard in the words wet and reward. This consonant sound ranks in the not so common category along with its counterparts: h, j and k. The letter W can also be silent, e.g., wrap, wrote and two. The combination of the letters “w” and “h” results in three unique sounds.

  1. The W is silent, e.g., whole & whom.
  2. The H is silent, e.g., wheat & whale.
  3. Some people pronounce an H sound before the W. So the words above are pronounced /hwet/ and /hwal/.

In addition, the letter W when combined with a vowel can produce a vowel sound, e.g., now, owl, and saw.
