38 Weak Verbs with Original Waw as the 1st Radical (ו״פ Verbs)
In initial position, Waw has become Jod. As a result, the פ״ו verbs are listed in the lexicon under Jod (י). Waw appears as a consonant only in the imperfect class of the Nif‘al and sometimes in the Hithpael.2
There are weak forms where the 1st radical closes a preformative syllable (Qal PC, Nif‘al AC, in the entire Hif‘il and Hof‘al → § 36.1) and also with a few verbs appearing very frequently in the Qal imperative and infinitive (→ § 36.3).
