Examples of homophones involving the sounds w and wh, which are nearly indistinguishable in most speakers of the English language born in southern Britain, or England. Most speakers of English in the Celtic nations of Wales, Scotland and Ireland have no trouble in distinguishing them. The IPA uses two different symbols to represent the two different sounds. The simpler 'w' phoneme is written /w/; the slightly stronger 'wh' phoneme is /ʍ/. The RP accent of British English does not use /ʍ/.
