W - Prefix

WIP: this article is incomplete and might change in the unforeseeable future.
In Japanese, W means "double." Yes, you read that right. W. It's pronounced daburyuu ダブリュー in Japanese. (see katakanized alphabet letters.)

Not to be confused with wwww, which means "lol" instead. (just like kusa.)

This W is used as a prefix and a cool-looking slang to say you have a "double something." It means "double" because the name of the letter W is literally "double U."
  • daburyuu deeto
    Wデート
    Double date.
