what is the difference between אלה and אלו?

July 18, 2016


There isn't. Historically אלה is more ancient than אלו. But they have the same meaning.

A nicer phrasing: אלה הם שני קווים מקבילים

I was marked wrong for writing אלו instead of אלה. Surely it should be accepted? A question: why is קוים spelled with only one vav? My understanding is that two vavs are conventionally used when there is no nikkud, to clarify that it's a consonant and not a vowel, Is there a particular reason for קוים being written this way or is it just a matter of usage?
