I hear the pronunciation as tehEne, but when I look up the vowels on this verb form I see it pronounced as TehAne. please clarify. thanks.
I think stuff like this is really important. Learning what people actually say as well as more "standard" pronunciation. תודה!
Question - is this the 2nd person, future tense and masculine form of the verb לההנות (to enjoy) ? If that's the case, shouldn't it be תֵּהָנֶה and pronounced like "tehane"? the audio sounds more like "tehene" though
so there is a female sg., male sg. , and 1 plural for this? what is the fem,masc, and plural form of this??
The 1 form is used for both.
It is technically masculine, female have another, תהננה, but it's very very formal, and archaic. Not much in use.
Is this from the verb נהנה (enjoy)? What tense/mood is it (like imperative or something)?
What's the difference between תהנה and תהני?
Imperative almost doesn't exist in modern hebrew anymore. Whenever needed, we usually just use the future form of the verb (without the pronoun). For example, the imperative form of לכתוב (to write) for a sg. m. you would be "!כתוב" (ktov!), but it's very archaic, and תכתוב (tichtov - future) is far more common. In fact, hebrew is my first language and I have no idea whats the actual imperative form of the verb "להנות". So you're right, the form is in the future but grammatically it's supposed to be imperative, with a notion of wishing.
I would like to know the answer to this too! I've been studying Hebrew with an ulpan in Israel for over 2 years and I've never encountered this word.
