SyllableEdit

(romaji vu)

  1. The hiragana syllable (vu). Its equivalent in katakana is (vu).

Usage notesEdit

This is a relatively recent addition to kana usage to represent the non-native sound vu. As such, this is only found in borrowed words. Older speakers may pronounce this more as /bu/, [bɯᵝ].
