<vay' moH> = "somebody/something ugly" can certainly mean <moHbogh loD> = "a 
man who is ugly", but it can also mean <moHbogh be'> "a woman who is ugly",  
<moHbogh Dach> "a thing which is ugly", etc.  For that matter, in context, the 
derived noun <moHwI'> "an ugly person/thing" could also mean all those things.

I'm not sure I understand your question.
