Kleenbookstaav (Grootbookstaav Ւ)

  1. The 34th letter of Armenian alphabet, called վյուն (vyun) or հյուն (hyun). Transliterated as w.
    Represents:
    voiced labio-velar approximant: IPA(key): [w] in Old Armenian (except in digraph ու (u))
    voiced labiodental fricative: IPA(key): [v] in Eastern Armenian
    voiced labiodental fricative: IPA(key): [v] in Western Armenian

Usage notes[ännern]

After the Spelling reform of the Armenian language during Soviet era (1922-1924) this letter has been replaced by վ (v), surviving only as a component of letters ու (u) and եւ (ew). However, the reform was not accepted by the Armenian diaspora outside the USSR which continues using ւ according to Traditional Armenian orthography.
