Armenian

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): [u]
  • (file)

Etymology 1

From the Old Armenian digraph (u) representing [u], composed of ? (o) + ? (w). Some have contended that Old Armenian (u) was a diphthong, but this is incorrect: representing the monophthong [u] with a digraph is modelled on Ancient Greek (ou) pronounced as [u].[1] Compare Old Church Slavonic (u).

Letter

lowercase (uppercase , title-case )

  1. The 34th letter of Armenian alphabet according to Reformed Orthography. Represents close back rounded vowel: [u]. Transliterated as u (sometimes as ow).

Etymology 2

Conjunction

o (u)

  1. and
    - es u du - me and you
Usage notes

Generally used to link two things in close relation, such as in English you and I or in the sense of combining two clauses of close relation while deemphasizing their relationship. In English, this would generally be done by combining predicates, as in I went to the store and bought ice cream. It is never used as a conjunction in the fashion of ? (ew), which is used as a coordinating conjunction between two independent clauses, as in I went to the store, and I bought ice cream.

Synonyms
  • (ew)
