Nice quiz. Can you replace whore (prostitute) with wreck (break, devastate), it is not good to feature in a quiz

Pronounce sword and then pronounce swollen. No where close to being the same initial sound.

Maybe in English. However, with the possible exception of "wry', I pronounce all of the "Ws" given here.
