500 Common Words: W as in Always / Silent v or w

Success! You're on the list.

W is the sound you make on your lips. Your lips start in an O shape, move in and then move outward. 

In American English, V and F are similar, yet opposite. V vibrates, and F does not. We have no interchange between V and W spellings and sounds. They are separate, distinct sounds.
