Say wow! How to use and read the letter ‘vav’ in Hebrew Posted by Transparent Language on Dec 19, 2017 in Uncategorized
Romantic introduction to vav
- when we add a dot in the middle on the left hand side we create a letter surek (וּ) which is read “oo”, as in pull;
- when we add a dot on top the resulting letter, holem (וֹ), is read “oh”, as in lock;
- when nothing is added vav is read “v”, as in vegetarian.
Avoid vav confusion
