There needs to be audio for these new words.
I think it's
Hee shotá mayim
"He" with a long e sound.
I know it's written in places as "hi", but I think that looks too much like the English greeting word "hello, hi" and can be confusing to English speakers first learning the word.
You got a point there. I'll change it:)
Yes, please make sure to report these bugs whenever you find them so the audio is added! I have already completed many reports for missing audio. :(
Yes please, I concur
I'm finding it hard to learn without the audio because the script is not familiar
Or at least they could write the pronunciation for new words in english letters if they cant be recorded right now.
what does the small 'T' thing below the tav represnt?
It's called "nikkud". I don't remember which in particular (an o or an a), but nikkud are the conventional way to represent the vowels. Look it up in Google and you will see the list.
This particular nikkud, (the ָ under the tav) makes the 'ah' sound. Like the 'a' in the word 'father'.
What's the difference between "he" and "she" again! I'm having trouble with it.
He — הוא (hu)
She — היא (hi)
If you're talking about the verb:
Masculine — שותה (Shoté)
Feminine — שותה (Shotá)
Spelling is the same, but pronunciation differs.
Djenthallman, you have a mistake:
Fixed, thank you.
If if is pronounced 'hu' why is there an alef at the end? Is it a silent alef?
Letters א-ה-ו-י might be silent anywhere in a word
I was taught 'who is he and he is she' - a nice way to remember
Well the Hebrew word for "who" sounds like the English word "me" and the Hebrew word for "he" sounds like the English word "who", while the Hebrew word for "she" sounds like the English word "he".
She = hee
he = hoo
who = mee
