"This is a nut."
Lol. New meaning for "leggo me egoz". However, I'll never forget the word again.
Does זח and זאה both mean this is and that is, but for different genders (if so which one is which?) Or does one mean this, and the other that?
Both of them can mean "this" or "that". "זה" is for masculine nouns and "זאת" is used for feminine nouns.
I'm just starting Hebrew but I would imagine that an English idiom wouldn't have the same meaning when directly translated into another language. If I remember correctly, an English WWII general replied "Nuts!" to a demand for surrender to confuse his enemy.
Is there a trick/mnemonic/rule which helps to remember the article of a noun? Or do they have to memorized like in German, for instance?
There is only one article in Hebrew: ה (the). "That/this" (masc. זה/fem זהת) are referred to as demonstrative pronouns.
As for the question, in Hebrew it seems to be the case that feminine nouns often (always? don't know) end in ה, for instance boy is ילד and girl is ילדה. Vocab like man (גבר) and king (מלך) do not end in ה but the feminine יונה (dove) and יאשה (woman) do.
This is a bit confusing as the masculine demonstrative זה ends in ה whereas the feminine זהת ends in ת.
Hebrew is too hard. Japanese is easier to me. this crap makes my brain itch.
I have another app called Mango,but you either have to pay or use your library card number to see if your library supports it. When you type in your number it will let you use it for free. I find it easier to use for hebrew because it explains more.
