Vo°, is commonly regarded as the prefix combination vi+ava° (i.e. vi+o°), but in many cases it simply represents ava° (=o°) with v as euphonic (“vorschlag”), as in vonata (=onata), voloketi, vokkanti, vokiṇṇa, voropeti, vosāpeti, vosāna, vossagga. In a few cases it corresponds to vi+ud°, as in vokkamati, vocchijjati, voyoga. (Page 651)
