F
At the end of syllables, and between two vowels, the Anglo-Saxon f is occasionally represented by u, the present English v; it is, therefore, probable that the Anglo-Saxon f in this position had the sound of our present v, as Luu, luf = lufu love; fíf five; hæuþ, hæfþ haveth; Euen, efen even. In the beginning of Anglo-Saxon words, f had the sound of the English f, as Fíf five, finger finger, finn fin, fisc fish. The Rune not only stands for the letter f, but for Feoh, which, in Anglo-Saxon, signifies money, wealth. v. feoh IV and RÚN.
