Words with AW saying "awwww..."

Teach this by discovery, after the OY/OI and OW/OU combination. This sound is harder to discern, there are more exceptions, and more possible confusions, and the words aren't as common. For some students, learning the most common examples of this pattern and then adding other words as needed will be less frustrating than trying to learn a lot of these words and the "exceptions to the exceptions."

This is a comprehensive reference list, in alphabetical order.
