⟨w⟩ (consonant monograph)

From Teflpedia

⟨w⟩ is an English consonant monograph consisting of a single letter W.

This fairly reliably sounds a w sound, but in some names derived from other Germanic languages, it sounds phoneme /v/, e.g. Richard Wagner (the composer).

It is essentially never doubled to ⟨ww⟩.

W is also used in some vowel digraphs such as ⟨aw⟩, ⟨ew⟩, ⟨ow⟩ — not within the scope of this article.
