# Find English words with Sound of V or W?

Search and find some English words which when written starts with o and when speaking they pronounce with sound of v or w lets see who ll find maximum words?

• So the first is "o", and it sounds like "v" or "w"? – nicael Jun 9 '16 at 9:30
• Do you mean like 'of"? – Inazuma Jun 9 '16 at 9:34
• of and o does not gives sound of v or w – pakistanimoon Jun 9 '16 at 9:41
• 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. – user21939 Jun 9 '16 at 9:57
• 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. – Kate Gregory Jun 9 '16 at 13:20

1. One (In english accent = 'won', In German accent = 'von') :-)
2. Once
3. Oneself
4. Ouija Board (I know, technically it's french but it is in the English dictionary!!)

• No idea why someone gave this a downvote.. corrected it with an upvote on my behalf. – Tim Couwelier Jun 9 '16 at 9:37
• Word #4 is definitely a word in English, whatever its origin might be. – user21939 Jun 9 '16 at 9:58

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

One

Basically all that starts with one.
