What is the difference between עגבניה and עגבנייה?

June 26, 2016


They're the same word. The norms of spelling, when writing without nikkud, change over time, and also there are slight differences that are due to personal taste. Some people like to write it this way, some prefer the other. I think I mostly see עגבניה but maybe not everyone will agree.

It's really not correct to test for such spelling norms at this level of learning. This question should be removed.

Well potato potato. We're going to see both anyways.

When do numbers come before the noun and when do they come after?

August 19, 2017


One is the only number that comes after

After Even Shoshan it is either עגבנייה in Ktiv male, where consonantal ו ([v]) and י ([j]) are doubled in the middle of words, or with Nikkud: עַגְבָנִיָּה. Thus the above solution is treif. What do you from Duolingo say to this?

Is עגבניה masculine? I thought it was feminine this whole time

It's feminine, he's not referring to male as in masculine or the opposite of female. Instead he's referring to a Hebrew term for writing diacritics: https://www.hebrewpod101.com/lesson/absolute-beginner-questions-answered-by-your-hebrew-teacher-4-niqqud-vs-ktiv-male/
