ւ lowercase (uppercase Ւ)
- The 34th letter of Armenian alphabet, called վյուն (vyun) or հյուն (hyun). Transliterated as w.
- voiced labiodental fricative: [v] in Eastern and Western Armenian
- labiovelar approximant: [w] in Armenian dialectology
- Formerly, near-front near-close rounded vowel: [ʏ] in Armenian dialectology and dialectal orthography
After the Spelling reform of the Armenian language during the Soviet era (1922—1924) this letter has been replaced by վ (v), surviving only as a component of letters ու (u) and եւ (ew).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.
