In English you don't really say the dad, it doesn't sound right at all. You say "Is Dad coming?" with a capital D.

Even in Hebrew you never say האבא בא?.

Do you use that Google keyboard thingy? Then you can just hold down on the space bar for a moment and it will let you add keyboards.

Why cant it be translated as "The dad is coming"

Since it's a question, it's best to phrase question as "Is the dad coming?"

If the hay is hay ha-sheala the translation is Is dad coming.... not the dad
