It's incredible how he absolutely nails the sound difference between v and b if I were not Mexican I don't think I would notice the difference but it's definitely there

@Niaer there is a difference in MOST hispanic dialects. I know argentinians give it no difference but it sure as hell sounds different in carribbean dialects. Mexicans pronounce the ll with a y sound. Panamians with a y and j sound smashed together and argentinians with a shj sound. Spaniards speak with a lisp. For you to sit there and say there is no difference is misleading.

@Ginés de Pasamonte theyre not. Puerto ricans pronounce R like an L. Carribbeans straight up drop syllables. V and B is a different sound in many spanish dialects. My mothers dialect pronounces the ll more like a cross between a "y and j" sound whereas i hear mexicans sound it out more like a full y sound and argentinians give it a SHj sound. All these so called "Spanish" claiming it is the same sound makes me think you all live in a rock and never speak to any hispanic beyond your goat village. But seriously most hispanic dialects distinguish it. Are you argentinian or something. I know they dont.

Gonna be honest, my v and b sound has always been a mix of both. Same with "ll" I used to pronounce it as a short of English j sound, but my Spanish teacher said that was wrong (its a reigonal thing, and i happened to not know textbook Spanish). So i tried to get used to making a y sound and now it's a mixture of both. .-.

In European Spanish we call "V" "uve", so "w" is "uve doble" and that's the normal name for it. Just thought you could find that interesting too.

Spanish basically just allows both double-U and double-V. From my experience, I’ve only ever heard the double-U version so it might be a regional thing like Español vs. Castellano or Piña vs. Ananás.

@Maria Ximena Otalora Cordoba that’s because in english and french the “v” and “b” sound different, they are different phonetically. In spanish the difference between “v” and “b” is just reduced to orthography, they sound exactly the same and the RAE confirms it.

For anyone curious in some linguistics in latin there is no W instead V makes the sound that W does in english. And V was used as W as well. So V evolved into V U and W. From latin. Very cool.
J.C.L. Eagan
J.C.L. Eagan Aylar önce
Fun fact; w as a letter actually is two u’s and v’s combined. See in Latin, v and u were the same letter, v. This v was pronounced as u between consonants, and as w before vowels. Over time the w pronunciation become v in Latin and it’s descendants. So v was pronounced as oo in pool and v as in veal. The Germanic languages meanwhile, still had a w sound, and to write it, they placed two v’s together.

Yes, In persian and urdo the V and U are the same letter. Which is و. Recently, they add a new letter for the v, which is ڤ, but nobody use it, I can't even write it by the keybord, so I copy and paste it. This similarity effected the Hebrew Launguage as well, since most of them are Khazars. In Hebrew they used ו for U and בֿ for V (not בּ⁠‎ wich is B). However, Khazars used the u and v as the same letter, which made V in Hebrew names that are originally not V but U, like in "David", which written like this דוד (DUD) in Hebrew, but pronounced the way you know. While in Arabic they don't use the V anyway, so they still call the name as it used to be: Dawood (داود / DAUD).

Adrian Martinez Dorsett
"V" and "B" are supposed to make the exact same sound, and the original name for "v" is "uve", which is still used in Spain. Latin America is heavily influenced by the USA and other languages in these kinds of things, but the RAE is supposed to make the rules since it's a prescriptive language.

Siempre oí que la distinción b-v en español es minoritaria, no algo general, puesto que se perdió hace mucho tiempo. Por eso la gente siempre se confunde a la hora de poner b o v, igual que a la hora de poner y o ll que les sucede algo similar. Se me hace súper raro oírla aquí lmao

It is actually called a "double u" for a very valid reason. In Old English we dropped the runic alphabet and converted to the Latin alphabet instead. We originally had the letter "wynn" which was based off of a rune of the same name because Latin did not have a letter to make the "w" sound (One of two runic based letters at the time, both of which have since been discarded. Thorn [Þ þ] is the other; Thorn ia actually still used in the Icelandic alphabet.) Wynn was then replaced by "uu". Very slowly over a long period of time this "uu" merged, first being written with the tails crossing and then finally being formed into a seperate letter entirely but it never recieved a new name. It is still named after it's origin of "uu".

En realidad en español la diferencia entre la pronunciación de V y B es inexistente, la diferencia de pronunciación depende de dónde se ubica la letra en la palabra, no por la letra con la que se escribe. Para investigar más sobre esto, recomiendo el canal de Liguriosa. In fact, the difference in pronunciation between V and B doesn't exist. The pronunciation is based in where the letter is located, not in what letter that's spelled. To know more about this, I recommend the TRvid channel called "Linguriosa", it's in Spanish but I think has subtitles. In realtà la differenza nella pronuncia delle lettere V e B in spagnolo non esiste. La pronuncia depende della posizione della lettera nella parola, non della lettera con la che è scritta la parola. Per investigare più, raccomando il canale "Linguriosa". È in spagnolo ma credo che ha sottotitole. Il mio italiano non è più buono perché sono imparando la lingua hahaha

@Ignemuton This isn't entirely true either. Most of what you said is pure speculation that cannot be proven. As is the case with most things pertaining to the origin ns of a word or letter. We don't know the exact story, but your side is no more right than what the original person said.
Ignemuton 20 gün önce
This is actually not entirely correct. You see originally U and V werent distinct, you could write either of them and it could make either U, W or V sound depending on its location in the word in latin. However during the early medieval period the sounds /w/ (which was spelled as V) and the sound /b/ (which was spelled as B) transformed both into /β/ (very similar to the modern day v in the word "*v*ery") Because now germanic speakers had no symbol to represent the sound /w/. In order to represent said sound they wrote VV or UU (remember the two shapes were not distinct yet), because of this writers of old high german and old english called the digraph uu "double u". However the english made their own symbol for it (wynn ƿ which derrived from nordic runes) Eventually when the normans who spoke french invaded them, they reintroduced the idea of the "doube u" (uu). Whether it was VV or UU changed depending on the font but eventually by the 14th century it would be considered its own separate letter. In middle high german the sound /w/ eventually became the same sound as modern V which is why they use W to represent V.

@Ceridwynn Haven Drawing sharp edges puts way more strain on your wrist and other joints than drawing soft edges. Historically, people had to write everything down by hand. They didn't have modern keyboards. So writing sharply curved letters all day would lead to permanent wrist damage over time. Same happens with reading. Reading sharp jagged letters strains the eyes way more than reading soft letters. Our bodies are not built for sharp mechanical movements.

Actually there’s a misunderstanding with the spanish one. It’s not that we call it “double u-v”, it’s just that in Spain we refer to the “v” letter as “uve” and to “b” as “be”, whereas in the other spanish speaking countries they refer to these letters as “ve” and “be” respectively (yea the difference in sound is very little) , so we actually say it like the french

Double U is how I say it although some Spanish speakers say it in different ways

If two U's put together makes an "W" then, two n's make a m so why is it not called a double N?
Aureolin 12 gün önce
Because the M came first. But also at the same time. So the are EM and EN also the sizes of letters in printing. EM for wide letters; M and W. EN for most everything else. “I” being an outlier.

I call the letter W “doble u”, I’m from Colombia and like the formal way of saying it is “Doble V”, but almost no one calls it that

Actually most spanish speakers pronounce B and V the same way. In elementary school lots of kids have problems learning how to write because the confusion generated by this.

In German, this letter (w) is called "ve" like you'd pronounce the beginning of the word "vélo" (bike) in French. For learners of English it's always a bit confusing because what we know as a "w" is in English a "v". The letter "v" is called "fau" and is sometimes pronounced like a "f" (Vater - father, Vogel - bird) and sometimes like a v (Vase - vase, Vanille - vanilla). Edit: Someone corrected my example, I've changed it. ;)

@Buuhan yes I was taught that on my German 1 class at the beginning of the year. Our teacher told us that if we forgot a word to just hope they speak English haha
Buuhan Aylar önce
@Ruby Bailor Kein Problem. Did you know that in modern Germany you can easily get around with speaking English? But it depends on the region and what person you're talking to. It's just not like in France or some other European countries where they don't want to speak anything other than French. Most young people here even use English very often as a kind of bonus to German.
