  1. Contrary to your video, the correct way to pronounce the aw sound IS usually with its W. It is not pronounced as “ah”, or the short O sound. Although there is current and increasing mispronunciation of words like “AH sum”, such wide misuse has not changed this rule. The word is still pronounced with its W: “AW sum”.
