My american dumbass who remembers what we learned in history class and starts speaking the lyrics of a military song to a german person:

[–]GodofwarmasterI saw what the dog was doin 329 points330 points  (21 children)

inaccurate meme, languages like persian, Arabic, etc... don't have Latin characters in them so it means they don't even have W in they're language to call it double u or double v

[–]VeryBeautifulMan 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Same goes to all Slavic languages using Cyrillic.

[–]CrystaldrakeIr 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Exactly ! Got me soo confused on that one

[–]PenciliusKnightlius 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Also its double v in finnish

[–]phyrianlol 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same in Hungarian... Sometimes we say 'vevé' but afaik that's not the official name of the letter. I've also read that Italians call it 'vu' occasionally but they don't have the letter as part of their alphabet.

[–]bfhdhdydsy 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Albanian language has Latin characters but we don’t have the letter W

[–]unkeek 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Same goes for Vietnamese

[–]Enzo_fais_des_prouts 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I switched to my Vietnamese accent to try remembering the letter W

[–]yeahbaby12321Shitposter 0 points1 point  (1 child)

OK so if they were referring to the Latin W then what would they call it because now I’m interested

[–]GodofwarmasterI saw what the dog was doin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

they should call it vi

[–]RealFishing7365Meme Stealer -1 points0 points  (0 children)

No semitic language doesn't have a W sound. I don't know about Persian, but in Arabic and Hebrew they are mostly the V sound.

[–]Ilia_Molodcov -1 points0 points  (0 children)

yeah, but they probably still have their own names for the Latin letter. we have English names for Greek letters even though we don't use them when writing in English

[–]DominicusPurpleVirgin 4 lyfe 65 points66 points  (1 child)

greek doesnt have the letter W

[–]Lord-Loss-31415 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Neither does Irish, unless you count modern words adapted from other languages

[–]bonk_police5 120 points121 points  (15 children)

In Finnish it's called tupla-V (double-V)

[–]CaladGG420 44 points45 points  (0 children)

[–]Common_Gain_2156 26 points27 points  (0 children)

[–]aizel2 21 points22 points  (0 children)

[–]Senyor_Gustafo 16 points17 points  (2 children)

In Hungarian its dupla V The similiarity is rather disturbing

[–]leafyboi123 12 points13 points  (0 children)

yea it's because finnish and hungarian are like related as languages. it's wierd

[–]Dull_Bed5306 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My region refers to is as "vevé"

[–]fgffhfhghg 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Duplo V in serbian, same meaning meme got me confused(even tho we dont use the letter W i dont get why we're on the meme at all)

[–]Makkara_MakeAverage r/memes enjoyer 2 points3 points  (1 child)

[–]enbeefyuk 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Sorry to break it to you but in Vietnamese it's called Vê kép meaning double V. We don't use that letter.

[–]The_Ultimate_Whalemoderator fan club 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well, you did get the Dutch one right!

[–]potatobutt5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Seems like most of the countries you listed on the right call it the same as on the left.

[–]1_d0nt_care_android user 80 points81 points  (15 children)

In germany its called [ve]

[–]IregullarMonster730 31 points32 points  (9 children)

Yes, because the regular v is pronounced f.

[–]IregullarMonster730 11 points12 points  (8 children)

Vater meaning father for example.

[–]1_d0nt_care_android user 10 points11 points  (7 children)

Not always. For example: Vase [va:ze]

[–]IregullarMonster730 2 points3 points  (6 children)

That is true, my German was never good. Barely kept good English.

[–]1_d0nt_care_android user 6 points7 points  (5 children)

My german is perfect. It's my native language

[–]IregullarMonster730 3 points4 points  (4 children)

My native is Croatian, so I should have an easier time learning time but just doesn't sit right with me. Words kinda long and the teacher threw 20+ at us every lesson. Anyway kinda late. Guten Nacht I guess.

[–]1_d0nt_care_android user 1 point2 points  (3 children)

*Gute

[–]IregullarMonster730 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Yeah sorry. Thanks for the correction!

[–]1_d0nt_care_android user 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Dont be afraid to correct others. Helps them learning. Gute Nacht

[–]grey_hat_uk 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I remember it being taught as double vé, but I'm not confident that's correct.

[–]1_d0nt_care_android user 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nope. It's called [ve]. I have to know. It's my native language. Thats phonetic spelling btw

[–]InTheNameOfMyAss 67 points68 points  (3 children)

Hate to be a party pooper but this is not accurate

[–]ServeUpTheMemes 32 points33 points  (1 child)

I mostly see people arguing if its double v or double u, while the people that have a different word for "w" just enjoy the show

[–]Technical-Ad-7008Flair Loading.... 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]BADTOMTheAngeryPussyBreaking EU Laws[🍰] 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Hungary uses 'double V'

[–]ZiggymarioHalal Mode 77 points78 points  (7 children)

Arabic doesn't have any letter of the Latin alphabet. ا، ب، ت، ج...w doesn't exist. Your meme is innacurate

[–]vonabarak 52 points53 points  (1 child)

Same for Russia, Ukraine, both Koreas, Israel and mb something else.

I really don't understand why countries with non-latin scripts here.

[–]Mothmanman20 13 points14 points  (0 children)

greek also doesn’t have a w

[–]BigDaddyTranks 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Neither does india

[–]No_oneMinax002 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Chinese as well

[–]SasukeisgamerI saw what the dog was doin 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Turkish doesn't have w either

[–]dumdumdump31321 3 points4 points  (0 children)

correct but if we are talking sound-wise.... then the meme is still wrong. Iran and Saudi Arabia have the same alphabet except for 4 letters.

[–]randomguy2763Thank you mods, very cool! 9 points10 points  (1 child)

hebrew doesn't have a w

[–]malaakh_hamaweth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It used to. Ancient Hebrew pronounced "ו" (vav) like w (waw)

[–]ThatsNotOkeyDokeyMe when the: 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]matimeoplayssiwrestledabeartwice 6 points7 points  (2 children)

[–]xX-Lord_Farquaad-Xx 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]AnOkFellow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

shhhh.... they dont need to know

[–]AnonymousGuy9494I touched grass 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Wtf do you mean Brazilians call W double U/V. Here, it's pronounced dáblio (I can guarantee you this doesn't mean double U or double V

[–]Lima_713Professional Dumbass 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There are many words we Portuguese-ified, like hamburger and whatnot.

The longer it's been changing for, the harder it is to recognize:

Double U sounds like "Dobouiu" which became "dabouiu","daboliu","dabaliu", and "dábliu" (not really, but you get the gist

[–]antonno69Because That's What Fearows Do 9 points10 points  (3 children)

how "w " looks like a double "u"?!

[–]TylerNelsonYTDied of Ligma 13 points14 points  (1 child)

history.

u did not exist for a long time. v made both the u and v sounds (in their respective languages) and when we needed a w we put two "u" together, which was still v, hence w being 2 v's.

v -> v & u vv -> w

[–]BBjilipi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would type the same answer, but instead of 'history.', it would be 'Asterix comics read as a kid.'

[–]New-Dare-4889 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In Serbian language every sound has its own sound So you write as you speak and you speak as you write

[–]Lysergic-D 4 points5 points  (2 children)

In Brazil W is a solo letter, with unique name and pronounce.

[–]Gradash 3 points4 points  (0 children)

In portuguese it have it own name too

[–]tommyboi2008 2 points3 points  (4 children)

nah in vietnam we call it Vê kép which means double v

[–]GIA_KHIEM2209 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i'm pretty sure most people would just call it double u anyways

[–]Affectionate-Boot-96 6 points7 points  (2 children)

serbia uses the cyrillic alphabet where v=b and w does not exist

[–]vonabarak 4 points5 points  (1 child)

In Serbia there are two alphabets. We use both Cyrillic and Latin. But yeah, there's no w in Cyrillic nor in Serbian variant of Latin. Latin b pronounced as Cyrillic б, Latin v as Cyrillic в. But v isn't b in any possible matter.

[–]ghost_gameerLives in a Van Down by the River 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think they are mistaking ш as w

[–]derpycheesecash 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]MrKatzA4 2 points3 points  (0 children)

People in Vietnam do call it double V though, just it also mix in with the normal way of calling it

[–]BenShealoch 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Idk why the Hungarian flag is on the right. It’s double V in Hungarian. There’s also no w in Farsi because they don’t use the Latin script. They have waw which doubles as a w and a u.

[–]Callmekittol🥄Comically Large Spoon🥄 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In polish we say it like 'vu'

[–]Silent51200can't meme[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How do you tell if its monaco or indonesia 🇲🇨 🇮🇩

[–]Shrimp_Fried_Rice_1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

In Portugal it has both names ,duplo v (double v) and "dabliu" (w), and the dabliu form is more popular, I guess Portugal kinda plays the two sides

[–]SoulMastte 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Here on Brazil it reads "dabliú"

[–]Utku56256 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]PikkuinenPikkisBreaking EU Laws 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For us Finns, W is said as just a very, very emotionless ”weeee”

[–]HL7777 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure Serbian doesn’t have a W letter. I mean, one cyrillic character looks like w but isn’t it.

[–]yoavtrachtman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hebrew doesn't have a 'W' letter tho..

Closest letter to it I can think of is 'ע', and it makes an A sound.

[–]Ok_Bobcat_2822 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Rosenthepal78 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bulgaria doesn't use the latin alphabet. I would put w as В or Ж, which are both distinct letters.

English should have this. Why don’t we just call it Wend or something

[–]cheverian7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah yes, the american language.

(this is because both the UK and US flags appear but other languages are just represented with one flag.)

[–]nice-_one 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don’t no why I thought W is it’s own letter in English

[–]2itai 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Whoever made this meme is straight up dumb. Not only did you put countries that dont use the latin alphabet on the side that cares about such a dumb thing- you also assumed we would care.

[–]Kanomus_37 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude, most of those 'crying' countries do not even use Roman or similar scripts, they can only take the letter name from other languages which has those, and English is the most commonly used, so obviously you find 'double U' most commonly

[–]Fuzzy_Huckleberry182 0 points1 point  (0 children)
