That "gv" sound in 'men' seems so strange and foreign to my English tongue -_-
"Tests" in English is quite hard to pronounce for me as a Spanish native speaker
Another common word where it is used is גבינה (cheese), but there are quite a few others as well. V in Hebrew comes after other consonants quite often, both as ב (vet) and as ו, וו (vav or double vav).
Is it more common to say gvarim as gentlemen or men, and gvr as gentleman, and man as ish? Because the differences are confusing me...
The words גבר, גברים emphasize the male gender.
This is because אנשים can be also translated as "people" (there are no gender-neutral words in Hebrew).
