Is the form אב not very common?

Does hebrew have indefinite articles like "a" ?

Why is "אני אב" not correct?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ran6996

I believe it should be.

In fact, since they distinguish between "Dad" and "father," there should be a similar distinction between "אבא" and "אב"

I don't know the difference between יון

The longest is a final nun (makes an N sound, and only comes at the end of the word). The shortest is a yod (makes a Y sound), and the middle one is a vav (which can sound as V, O, or U).

'ו' can likewise sound like a W depending on the Diaspora group.

I don't understand your correction. I thought what I wrote was identical to what you gave as the correct answer. It seems to me that whether I put the period at the end or at the beginning, you call it a typo. In this case you put it to the right of the beginning, and I did too. Please explain what you thought was wrong.
