What are semi-vowels?In the wonderful platform of ISC, an interesting contest is going on. Members are supposed to make new words using only consonants. Many words have been submitted by the Members. All the words contain ý'.
During my childhood, I learnt that 'w'and 'ý' are consonants but under some circumstances, these two letters can be used as vowels. So, these two letters are termed as semi-vowels. In the ongoing contest, all participating Members have been using 'y' as vowel to make new words.
In this context, I would like to know the other characteristics of these two semi-vowels. I hope other Members would help.
