Vav caused me no end of trouble, honestly. Originally I had trouble finding a good image to remember with. The original version of this page used vegetable but there aren't any vegetables that really look like Vav. Also, is a very tricky letter, but we don't need to learn all about that just yet. Just keep your eye out in the next few pages!
We're going to remember as a VASE. A vase full of flowers, but don't get distracted, because it's about the VASE. Vav, Vase... V sounds!
Now for some examples!
(Vav) The name of the letter, which happens to mean "hook."
(abegavehah) - Means nothing but it's fun to say!
Doesn't mean anything. Kinda long, too, huh? But get used to long words. Hebrew has its share. Especially with words like which are added to the beginning (in this case) or sometimes the end of a word. We'll see some of those later on.
Now for the funky part. can be a vowel, too.
