Modern hebrew, No. Biblical hebrew, Yes.
As a native Arabic speaker I noticed that ט is used in the same fashion as modern Arabic Ta ط and ת as modern Arabic Teh ت.
So for example: טָעִים - طعم - Ta'im - delicious تمر - תָמָר - Tamir - dates palm
When I closely look at these two words, both the Arabic and Hebrew words have the same spelling, meaning and TRANSLITERATION.
Also you can notice that ע Ain is used in a similar way to Arabic Ain ع which is kind of a schwa in modern Hebrew and can sound as an א أ
I am new to Hebrew. So far, I understand that there are 2 genders for words: male and female. (Just like my native Spanish. In a way I am grateful for there might be other languages that might have more. German comes to my mind with its three.) Is there a general rule of a pattern to follow? For example, in Spanish most words ending in the letter a are feminine. Also, most words ending in o are masculine.
Your insights will be greatly appreciated!

Languages are great, aren't they?! <3
normally the words that end in ה are for singular female nouns (like אישה,ילדה,כלבה) and for plural form they use ת at the end of the words... male form is a little bit harder to say if there is a rule or a pattern, and it is cuz the words i male forms are the base of the female forms, then you only have to take the ה out of the word. as for plural male form there is the ים that they put at the end of words to indicate that the sentence is i plural (like גברים,ילדים, כלבים)...
