Coo hwip. Even though I hate that show more than you hate toilet paper on the counter... I like that scene.

"wh" was spelt "hw" in old English, because that's how it was pronounced. Even though pronunciations have changed, if you think about it, "hw" seems more accurate in many situations.

Most of the time I say 'wh,' but sometimes I say 'hw.'

Wh, but this is a great way to distinguish the pronunciations

Hw, but as a reference to the original "Alice in Wonderland".

Isn't it pretty obvious that people would pronounce "wh" as "wh"?
5 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 8/2/12 - 11:16:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
I pronounce it 'wh'.

I HATE the "hw". When I encounter someone who does it, I feel SO distracted.
