How would you say "A water glass"? Like a glass specifically for water.

This one seems wonky due to no ''av''.

No, in Swedish you don’t use ”av” in constructions like these. ”Ett glas vatten”, ”en kopp kaffe”, ”en låda vin” etc.

Is that grammatically correct? And if it is has it always been like that or did the av kind of fall out or did it come afterwards gfudjfds

It's the same in German, where you would say "Ein Glas Wasser."
