The twenty-third letter of the English alphabet, takes its form and name from the repetition of a V, the Roman U. It is properly a vowel formed by expiration and opening of the lips, when previously fully rounded and closed. It is, however, regarded as a consonant, because it acts as such at the beginning of words and syllables, as in war, onward; because it is invariably followed by a vowel unless in the specified case of h, and because it never terminates a word unless preceded by a vowel. The terminal w is sometimes mute, as in low, know; and also the initial before r, as in write.
