Memorizing, mainly .. There are some rules like צט etc, but mainly memorizing
You memorize it. Unfortunately. How do you know in English if it's i or y? ( lay, lei, lie) Ph or F or Gh or V? (Phone, Fight, Tough), u, ou, o, ew, or oo (loose, shoe, flew) Z or S? Breeze, these
Memorization. There's rules in every language, I've read that loanwords from English are generally ט , with tet for t and tav for th. But who knows, discussed more here: https://hinative.com/en-US/questions/581291
You can't, although most loanwords are tet ט. Like פילוסופיה, היסטוריה, , טלביזיה, אוניברסיטה. Philosophy, history, television, university.
Usually, "th" turns into 'ת and "t" into 'ט. For example,
Mathematics = מתמטיקה
Orthodontics = אורתודונטיה
This stylus annoys because strawberries are sold in baskets, you can't buy individual berries (unless you buy at a pick your own - semantics). So translating
יש תותים,to me, implies baskets of.
So if you're having yoghurt at my house and ask if I have any fruit for you to add; I'd reply: There's fresh strawberries or there are mixed berries in the freezer.
Sorry I meant sentence (I use Swype app, I swyped on stylus by accident!)
I disagree - יש תותים = there are strawberries. (They could be on the bush, in a basket, or a bowl, in your salad, or whatever) יש סלים של תותים = There are baskets of strawberries Or more likely, people talk about the volumes of the baskets, so you might hear יש ליטרים של תותים = There are liter [sized basket]s of strawberries.
There was something I was responding to. I was in the app. It wasn't just the "there are strawberries." I can't remember at this point. But strawberries are (in AM English) in baskets. Unless you are at an orchard or similar (in comparison cherries are sold both loose and bagged in better /upscale stores) and I have no clue in Israel.
I think the context was collective nouns, singular vs plural (rules are different in the UK vs US). Thanks for the info!
