Anybody else hears an וֹ in אמן?
did a little research and found this-
Craftsman = אוּמָּן
How about אמן for 'amen'?
Well, what should be the sense of אָמֵן [amen] in this sentence?
No sense at all. It was just out of curiosity since I fisrt learned אמן as amen, from the bible. But I'll assume niqqud will tell whenever it's one or other.
Sometimes there's a kamaz - אָ - that is pronounced "o". That is for historical reasons, today it's mainly confusing.
The word had historically the form אֳמָן, there is the Chateph-vowel [o] in it.
Colloquially, one can pronounce this either "omán" or "amán", although the correct way is "omán".
Is במאי any kind of director? I.e. could it mean a film director, a school director, etc, or only one sense of the word?
Well, a בַּמַּאי is only a film director. A school director is called מְנַהֵל. The word was formed from בָּמָה "stage" to mean "stage-director", which was later also used for movies.
Does מנהל mean also simply 'boss'?
Well, being derived from the verb נִהֵל organise, administrate, manage, מְנַהֵל is a manager. Usually you can call your בּוֹס a manager too.
You are an artist or director ? Why is it not good
A question should begin with: "Are you..." and you are also missing "a" before director.
How to say "aren't you .. ? "
זה כל כך מטומטם זה פשוט טעויות קטנות וחסרות משמעות שבעברית בכלל לא קיימות
Someone please comment on the grammar and vocabulary usage in this comment, so we can all learn something useful from it.
If it were a comic, I would translate Ronisapir1's comment as something like "#$@!"... I suppose the answer correction code played games with him.
Is the או sometimes pronounced as "oo" and at other times "oh" ?
In sharp contrast to the many variants of ו "and", the word אוֹ "or" is always pronounced [o].
