The Spanish alphabet is made up of 27 letters. Previously, the letters "ch" and "ll" were included. According to the RAE (Real Academia Española), "The digraphs ‘ch’ and ‘ll’ are excluded from the alphabet, since they are not letters, but digraphs: that is, sets of two letters or graphemes that represent a single phoneme." It is important to note that in the Spanish vocabulary, there are no words with "w." The words that are used are only from other languages. For example, "waffle," "Wi-Fi" and "windsurf."
However, in the Puerto Rican vocabulary, there is a word that uses the "w." "¡Wepa!" is an expression of joy, happiness, and pride. That’s why I’ve included this word in the ABCs of Puerto Rico.
I hope you enjoy this resource and share your love of Puerto Rican culture. ¡Wepa!
