Nice is a horrible word to translate... What is the precise meaning of יפֶה ? Is it that the reading is enjoyable ... 'nice'? Or that the book is particularly 'beautiful' but not necessarily enjoyable? I cannot find the root of this word in Wiktionary. Is יפֶה the masculine singular dictionary form?
Yes יפֶה is the masc. singular. Literally it does mean pretty or beautiful. Here it could mean either that it's an enjoyable read or that the book is pretty.
Many thanks. What is the basic form of the adjective? I cannot find it in Wiktionary or on Google so do not know the pronunciation either...
The basic form is יפֶה. Pronounced YaFEY ("ah" as in saw - "ey" as in hey) emphasis on "fey"
יפה without the niqqud is not accepted. Noone ever would type it with a segol.
Why does Duolingo only want nikud half the time the rest it says it's wrong
Where do i find the upside down G with the vowel dots in the hebrew keyboard
