  • If you say "W" in french, it actually does sound like it should: "dubla vae"
    Which means "double V" . In frence, the letter V sounds like "vae" . Crazy Americans lose everything in translation. lol

  • I remember when I was in the 1st grade and I asked my oldest sister to help me spell a word.... she told me all the letters and then got to the "W" and she said, plain as day..... Double U..... so that's what I wrote down U U.... this was silly and fun. Very upbeat... Thank you poster!
