w    : [d'ʌbəlju]
Labial \La"bi*al\, n.
1. (Phonetics) A letter or character representing an
articulation or sound formed or uttered chiefly with the
lips, as {b}, {p}, {w}.
[1913 Webster]

2. (Mus.) An organ pipe that is furnished with lips; a flue
pipe.
[1913 Webster]

3. (Zool.) One of the scales which border the mouth of a fish

[1913 Webster]


W \W\ (d[u^]b"'l [=u]),
the twenty-third letter of the English alphabet, is usually a
consonant, but sometimes it is a vowel, forming the second
element of certain diphthongs, as in few, how. It takes its
written form and its name from the repetition of a V, this
being the original form of the Roman capital letter which we
call U. Etymologically it is most related to v and u. See V,
and U. Some of the uneducated classes in England, especially
in London, confuse w and v, substituting the one for the
other, as weal for veal, and veal for weal; wine for vine,
and vine for wine, etc. See Guide to Pronunciation,
[sect][sect] 266-268.
[1913 Webster]
