"You have love!"

Translation:יש לך אהבה!

June 28, 2016



Why is the masculine form wrong? There are two solutions: יש לך אהבה! (one with Shva and one with Patach)...it tells me that the masculine form (with Patach) is wrong...why?

The same thing happened to me with another setence a while ago: "You have a book" יש לך ספר I used the feminine form (sorry, can't put the Nikud) and it told me l had a typo for not using the male form. And no, it didn't have audio that implied the male form was needed. What am l missing?

"!יש לךָ אהבה" This was my answer and it said I am almost correct. What is wrong with that?

Why would יש לך אהבה be wrong?

"You" in English can be male or female, singular or plural – so a number of alternatives would be correct in Hebrew?

Why is the variant "לך יש אהבה" not right?

June 28, 2016


Should be accepted I think (though it puts more emphasis on "you" - you're the one who has love).

June 28, 2016


still here we cannot hear how's it pronounced, so we cannot feel if there is any emphasis. Thank you for the answer

It is the word order that causes this emphasis, not the pronunciation. Did you report the sound problem (I'm not a contributor, just a random speaker ;)?

The was no sound in this type of exersice. It was a test with 3 variants of answer

    This is what I understood as well reading the notes about "there is / to have".

    Where are there notes? All I see are the comments.

      The notes, when available, are in the first page when you click on the topic (e.g. Food1, Letters1, Letters2, Animals, etc). That's the page from where you select a specific "lesson". This is the direct link for the one about "There is": https://www.duolingo.com/skill/he/There-is

      Mind that I have never been able to see the notes from the Duolingo App for iDevices. They are clearly visible if you use Duoling via http on Duolingo.com. The last section of "There is", focusses on "Word Order". This is a copy&paste for you:

      Word Order

      Usually the word order for sentences referring to possession is as follows (reading right to left):

      thing possessed + possessor + יש + ל

      For example: יש לילד תפוח אין לילד תפוח

      An alternative order places the possessor at the start of the sentence, as follows: לילד יש תפוח This has the effect of placing more emphasis on the possessor than on the object possessed: "the boy (it's the boy, and not the girl, or the frog) has an apple".

      This example may help you to understand the difference: לילד יש תפוח, אבל לי אין the boy has an apple, but I don't.

      Thank you. I typically use the mobile app on Android, so there are no tips and notes available. I do see them (now that I look) on my laptop. However, I cannot print them out. When I copy and paste them into a document I get a lot of the Hebrew letters, but also many of them just appear as boxes. :-(

      I am hoping they will someday make the tips and notes downloadable/printable so I can have them to refer to next to my mobile app. Since I do not have cell service, I am dependent on WiFi to see the tips and notes in my browser.

      May 6, 2017


      Thanks you can't see them on any app. It has to be desktop view on website. But only some websites. I still can't tell if I'm supposed to have microphone questions.... ?

      In hebrew, there is a critical meaning to the order of the words (sometimes just the order alone will give you the opposite meaning!). If you say "יש לי אהבה" or "לי יש אהבה" it's not exactly the same thing :) (and sorry about my english...)

      August 7, 2016


      It actually means pretty much the same thing, I'm a native speaker by the way

      February 28, 2018


      The translation doesn't make sense יש means there is לך is to go. Surely the sentence should be את יש אהבה

      If this is something that you'd like I can save them to a PDF file easily for you to download. Samsung phones have a share files with a download link good for 24 hours.

      יש לך/לכן/לכם - all these variants are correct!
