WAU

Andrews Haw to Eng,

pers. pron., first person. I. Gram. § 122, 124. NOTE.—The w in this word seems unnecessary; it is formed by the coalescence of the emphatic o and au, the pronoun proper; thus the simple form au, emphatic o au, pronounced quickly becomes wau. The several forms are au, o au, wau and owau.
