In English spelling, the letters w and y sometimes represent vowels.
When w appears after a vowel, as in 'how', it represents part of the diphthong (or sequence of two vowels) 'ou' . The letter y often represents vowels when found in between two consonants, like in 'gym', or when at the end of a word, like in 'happy'.
