Is ו put at the beginning of a word to show "and"? If the sentence was "the mom and the dad," would it be written "האמא והאבא"? How do definite articles tag onto "and," and, are all Hebrew conjunctions similar? Thanks so much!

How do definite articles tag onto "and"?
It seems like you got it :)
Are all Hebrew conjunctions similar?
No - most of them are words.
Yes! I agree - please do. It should be allowed. I have written 'Mum' for all of the other sentences so far and they were correct but this one wasn't. So also it needs to be consistent.
Where is the "and" there is only "or" and why you dont teach letters and sounds first?
I think you're confusing או with -ו.
אמא או אבא
ima o aba
mother or father
mother and father
And on that second part: good question. I think they're trying to do that with "אבא בא" and "האם אהבה באה" etc., although it doesn't look like it's working for everyone. I recommend looking up a chart or busting out some flashcards. [2019/03/25]
The "vav" "ו" attached to "אמא" is the "and" in the sentence. It is always attached to the word that follows it.
Why is "A mother and a father," including the indefinite article in English, not correct?
