V is the twenty-second letter in the modern
Latin alphabet. Its name in English is spelled vee or occasionally ve ( due partly to inertia, and to some extent due to the more native Japanese sound).
Hanyu Pinyin, letter V is missing, as there is no sound [v] in Standard Mandarin but the letter “v” is used by most input methods to enter letter “ü”, since it’s missing on most keyboards. Romanised Chinese is a popular method to enter Chinese text phonetically.
Irish Languagethe letter v is sometimes used in loan words from English, such as "Vean" Van. However the sound "Ví" appears naturally in Irish when the letter B is lenitised or softened, i.e. [b] followed by a h forms a [v] so "Bhí" is pronounced Vee, "An Bhean"(the woman) is pronounced van, et cetera.
