hey guys w is a consonant latter u know ... the vowels are just a e i o u
and that's it ^^
The sound represented by the letter <w> has vocalic properties when it sits in the nucleus of a word, the vowel position, and consonantal properties elsewhere. For example,
down <vocalic; diphthong (part of the vowel)
queen <consonantal, [kw] is a consonant cluster; cf. keen)
Are there specific words that you would like explained?
