W

W

The letter W is the twenty-third letter of the Latin alphabet. In Portuguese it can be called double V or doubled V, which are names derived from the English "double-u". Unlike k and y, w was not part of the Portuguese alphabet in the pseudoeymological phase, being present only in foreign words; at the time of his assignment, was replaced by the words of English origin, or by words of German origin; it is still used in foreign words that are not properly attributed. In Brazil, the Orthographic Form of 1943, replaced the w in certain linguistic loans by v or u depending on the phonetic value. The 1990 Orthographic Agreement introduced the letter W in the Portuguese alphabet; however, it should be considered that its use will continue to be restricted to abbreviations, words with foreign origin and their derivatives. In Brazil, the AO-1990 entered into force as of January 1, 2009 and after the transition period of four years, will be the only norm effective as of January 1, 2013. A letra W é a vigésima terceira letra do alfabeto latino. Em português pode se chamar duplo V ou V dobrado, que são nomes derivados do inglês "double-u". Diferentemente do k e do y, o w não fazia parte do alfabeto português na fase pseudoetimológica, estando presente apenas em palavras estrangeiras; quando de seu aportuguesamento, foi substituída por u nas palavras de origem inglesa, ou por v, nas de origem alemã; ainda é empregada em palavras estrangeiras que não estejam devidamente aportuguesadas. No Brasil, o Formulário Ortográfico de 1943, substituiu o w em certos empréstimos linguísticos por v ou u dependendo do valor fonético. O Acordo Ortográfico de 1990 introduziu a letra W no alfabeto português; entretanto, deve-se considerar que seu uso continuará restrito às abreviaturas, às palavras com origem estrangeira e seus derivados. No Brasil, o AO-1990 entrou em vigor a partir de 1º de janeiro de 2009 e findo o período de transição de quatro anos, será a única norma vigente a partir de 1° de janeiro de 2013.
