I love how all the languages have the typical heavy-breathing voice... And then there comes the Hebrew version, like a stroll through a park, saying with a clear voice the מי אני ? מי אתה thing. Hilarious :D
The word אבא means "Daddy". The word for father is אב, and the י at the end means "my". If you want to say "your father" etc. you start with אבי and then add the suffix ך --this is because אבי is also the construct form of אב . (Constructs may be in a later lesson, but I clicked on "strengthen skills" and I'm not sure what lesson this is.)
If the child was a girl, would you say אביךְ? And if yes, how would that be pronounced? Aviha - avieh?
It is really fun too see how the semitic languages all do this in a slightly different way, like "imkha" in Hebrew, "emmak" in Arabic and "yimmokh" in Assyrian. All very concise and fine ways to insult your semitic friends. All you need for good insults in Hebrew is "imkha" and a couple animal names like "khamor", "kelev" and "gamal".
So how exactly do you express child/boy/girl in Hebrew? Does ילד mean boy as well as a child in general? And are there other words for son/daughter? (I suppose they will be taught in future lessons).
The problem is, words can't be neuter in Hebrew. So ילד means "child", but is male, so it means a boy. But there is also the word בן that means boy (it also means son, but that's besides this point). And it's like, if you say בן, you are being more specific. If you wanted to talk about a child generally, you would say ילד. If you wanted to talk about a girl you would say ילדה or בת. And ילדה can't describe a general child with an unspecified gender because life and language are unfair. :-(
Which is how, in one of the mobile app lessons, הילד והילדה מתנשקים בפינה came to be translated as "The kid and the girl are kissing in the corner."
And there are more specific words for younger or older children. I expect they will come up in later lessons.
Write exact phrases in English if this isn't what you meant
Va'ani? Not ve'ani? Let me guess, Hebrew grammar for vav that comes after alef but which nobody follows? :D
