Is there aw in the Spanish alphabet?

The letter ‘W’ (called ‘uve doble’ or ‘doble u’) stands out from the rest of the letters in the Spanish alphabet. This is because there are no native Spanish or Latin (where Spanish derives from) words that use the letter ‘W’. In Spanish the letter ‘W’ is only used for words from other languages.

Does the Spanish alphabet have aw?

Unlike most letters of the Spanish alphabet, the w (officially called the uve doble and sometimes ve doble, doble ve or doble u) does not have a fixed sound.
