Any answer to t-hero's second question? Curious to find out. Thanks
Hu lomed ivrit hekhrekhit.
is "חיוני" the same sort of essential?
Is לימוד usable here instead of לומד? I thought לימוד was study, while לומד was learn?
לימוד is the gerund form of the root ל.מ.ד (kind of). (limud)
It translates to learning or studying.
(lomed) לומד is the singular participle form (or the present form) of the verb, and therefore is the correct word to use here.
Is there any distinction between studying and learning? For instance it's possible to study without successfully learning.
Also animals can learn, but I've yet to see one studying.
Is not essential Hebrew the same as necessary Hebrew?
