In these words, the spelling pattern is aw represents the /or/ sound, like in the words saw, jaw, and drawl

While there are a few other ways of spelling the /or/ sound in English, there are three common situations in which it is likely that you will need to use the aw spelling pattern:

1) At the end of a word, like in paw and claw.
2) Before the letter ā€˜lā€™, such as in crawl and shawl.
3) Before the letter ā€˜nā€™, for example in lawn and yawn.

Occasionally the aw will also appear at the start of the word, like in awkward or awning.
