Consonants /ʒ/ versus /w/, 1 pair     

/ʒ/ does not occur in syllable initial position except in a few French loan words while /w/ is restricted to syllable-initial occurrence. The dictionary search turned up one pair, but it involved a loan word and a place name so is marginal. Obviously this is not a problem for learners.
