How Many vav Hahipuchs (Conversive vav) are in each of the 24 books of Tenach compared with the number of letters / verses in that book. As far as I know they are only in Tenach rather than Mishna or any subsequent work. It would be interesting to see if the number of conversive vavs declines as prophecy declined in the 2nd Temple period. I’d like to compare the ratio of conversive vavs in each book with the number of letters and verses in that book.


As far as  know thre are no Vav Hafucas in Torah Shebal Pe, therefore there are none in Mishnayos,Talmud etc.

Have a good Yom Tov
