-վ- • (-v-)
- Infixed in the verb between the stem and ending to create its mediopassive voice.
- սիրել (sirel) — to like
- սիրվել (sirvel) — to be liked
- սկսել (sksel) — (transitive) to begin, to start, to set in motion
- սկսվել (sksvel) — (intransitive) to begin, to commence
In Old Armenian the mediopassive voice was expressed by changing the ending of the verb to -իմ: սիրեմ (sirem, “I like”), սիրիմ (sirim, “I am liked”).
