What's longer to say? "double doublyu" or "doublyu doublyu" and how do you actually say?
Thanks.

    I would say double-u double-u.

    For example try this word:-

    a double r o double-u r double o t.

    and then

    s l o double-u double-u o r m

    Slowworm which is a kind of reptile as opposed to a worm that isn't very fast.
