and W (Posted on 2009-07-14) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Some letters of the alphabet have a special relationship with the letter W. (They vary widely and some may be difficult if you are not an English speaking American.) Try to explain each:

D and W

I and W

Q and W

Y and W

M and W

O and W

J, U and W

(In reply to Google's thoughts by Daniel)

It is not surprising that some of these have multiple ideas but here is where they stand in my view:

D+W: apparently have a funny youtube video togeather in which D is jealous of W's fame

Not quite but this fun song from my favorite band was where I got the idea.  ed bottemiller got this one maybe he likes TMBG too.

I+W: both lesser known grade letters I for incomplete and W for withdrawl

Cool idea but not what I had in mind.  This is a shape one.

Q+W: Both are illegal to use in Turkey because there is a law in Turkey banning their ussage since they are not part of the Turkish alphabet

Not quite (never even heard to that law) I am thinking of numbers 6 and 43.

Y+W: for a brief period of time both Y and W were tought as additional vowels to the usual A,E,I,O,U

Got it in one.

M+W: they are 180-degree rotations of each other (this one I got on my own)


O+W: only thing I can think of is that O can be made by joining 2 C's togeather as can W with 2 V's.

No.  Look down

J,U and W: in original Latin these letters are absent.

This is correct.
