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.

what does the small 'T' thing below the tav represnt?

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/CarinaPaula

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.

https://www.duolingo.com/meira_lisette

This particular nikkud, (the ָ under the tav) makes the 'ah' sound. Like the 'a' in the word 'father'.

  • 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.

If if is pronounced 'hu' why is there an alef at the end? Is it a silent alef?

Djenthallman, you have a mistake:

Masculine — שותה (Shoté)

Feminine — שותה (Shotá)

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
