  • $\begingroup$ So the first is "o", and it sounds like "v" or "w"? $\endgroup$ – nicael Jun 9 '16 at 9:30
  • $\begingroup$ Do you mean like 'of"? $\endgroup$ – Inazuma Jun 9 '16 at 9:34
  • $\begingroup$ of and o does not gives sound of v or w $\endgroup$ – pakistanimoon Jun 9 '16 at 9:41

    $\begingroup$ I don't think there is any English word that starts with O yet sounds like V. At least not in the pronunciation of any majority English speaking country. $\endgroup$ – user21939 Jun 9 '16 at 9:57

    $\begingroup$ To make this truly a puzzle, you should have a story involving two characters, one with an accent, overhearing some vital clue and reporting that it "started with a w sound" and another "started with a v sound" and the key to the puzzle is that it actually starts with the letter o. Phrased like this, it's not a puzzle at all. $\endgroup$ – Kate Gregory Jun 9 '16 at 13:20

2. Once
3. Oneself
4. Ouija Board (I know, technically it's french but it is in the English dictionary!!)

It'd be difficult to find ones that don't begin with "one" :D

1. Oneway (it seems to have arguable spelling, could be one-way)
2. Onefold
3. Onetime
4. Oneness

$\endgroup$

One
Ones
Oneself
Onefold
Oneness Onetime Oneown....

Basically all that starts with one.
