Final Consonants

סוֹפִי עִצּוּרים

Introduction
Five letters of the Hebrew Alphabet have final forms used when ending words. In Hebrew these final forms are called sofit (סופית‎).

Originally, these forms were used for punctuation purposes to denote the word ended when Hebrew did not use spaces between words. However, Hebrew has regularly employed word spacing since the 7th century, and final forms are now used for aesthetics and tradition.
