V \V\ (v[=e]).
   1. V, the twenty-second letter of the English alphabet, is a
      vocal consonant. V and U are only varieties of the same
      character, U being the cursive form, while V is better
      adapted for engraving, as in stone. The two letters were
      formerly used indiscriminately, and till a comparatively
      recent date words containing them were often classed
      together in dictionaries and other books of reference (see
      U). The letter V is from the Latin alphabet, where it
      was used both as a consonant (about like English w) and as
      a vowel. The Latin derives it from a form (V) of the Greek
      vowel [Upsilon] (see Y), this Greek letter being either
      from the same Semitic letter as the digamma F (see F),
      or else added by the Greeks to the alphabet which they
      took from the Semitic. Etymologically v is most nearly
      related to u, w, f, b, p; as in vine, wine; avoirdupois,
      habit, have; safe, save; trover, troubadour, trope. See U,
      F, etc.
      [1913 Webster] See Guide to Pronunciation, [sect] 265;
      also [sect][sect] 155, 169, 178-179, etc.
      [1913 Webster]

   2. As a numeral, V stands for five, in English and Latin.
      [1913 Webster]
