English Words with “V” at the End

on August 28, 2012

English words do not end in V. There will always be an E after the V. If you can hear the “v” sound at the end of an English word, it’s a safe bet to put the letter E after it.

The saying I was taught is: “No English words end in V, it will always be followed by an E.”

 

Examples:

Active

Effective

Behave

Hive

Have

Grove

Serve

Salve

Solve

Reprieve

Receive
