Three letter words ending in W include the likes of how, cow, ewe, few, sew, vow and yew. These terms can often be used as either a noun or a verb and can have multiple uses stemming from the English language. For instance, ‘how’ can refer to a question posed or it can also be used as a means to describe an activity or manner in which something is done. Similarly ‘cow’ is both an animal and a verb meaning ‘to intimidate’. Likewise ‘ewe’ is both a female sheep and to draw back from something while ‘few’ can either mean not many people/items or even occasionally refer to numbers. ‘Sew’ functions both as an activity of stitching fabric together along with being used as its own pronoun when referring to oneself while ‘vow’ has religious implications but may also simply refer to something declared earnestly and finally ‘yew’ which is typically used in reference to the evergreen shrub with red berries that grows on many different continents.
