Confusion with conjugating ανεβην


In Lesson XI (p. 17), the vocabulary lists the principal parts of ἀναβαίνω as:

ἀναβαίνω, (βαν-, βα-), ἀναβήσω (ἀνα-βήσομαι), ἀνέβησα (ἀνέβην)

I'm unclear about what's in the parentheses following the future and aorist forms. Are they future and aorist exceptions to the regular conjugations or rarer conjugations? In the exercises (53.1), ἀνέβη is used as a 3rd person singular. This led me to wonder if they were using it to mean that ἀνέβη- could ...

Pronunciation of the letter 'fαυ' (vau)

Hi group, I'm just starting Pharr and already I have a question. How do I pronounce the letter vau? As the letter represents the sound 'w', as in wine, is the letter pronounced 'wau' (as in the English exclamation 'wow') or is it pronounced 'vau' (as in the English - to make a 'vow'). Or is it pronounced in another fashion completely? Many thanks, I think I going to have a lot more questions before ...
