"The dad loves."
Why is this spelling of love different than the previous lessons ? Masculinity ?
The word "ABA" is somewhat a nickname, it is used as a perfect replacement for the official word AV, yet as a "name" it should not have the definite article "HA", as names can't have the definite article.
Can the order of the words ever be switched? Does "ohev ha'aba" mean the same thing? Or does it have another meaning like "He loves dad"? Or does it not make sense at all?
The order is flexible in Hebrew, yet words get more emphasis the closer they are to the beginning of the sentence. The neutral order (without special emphasis on any of the words) in articulating an active sentence is by placing (1) the actor (2) the verb.
Does any one know the hebrew alpabet or is this just teaching Love Mom Dad Is and The?
Why is the second letter in the word אוהב necessary? How can I memorize / explain it to me?
O and U are often indicated via the letter Vav. Also, אוהב belongs to the largest group of verbs, all of which (ok, most) start with an O vaul: kotev כותב (write), lomed לומד (learn), kofets קופץ (jump) and so on.
This letter (/o/ sound) is the sign of present tense for this verb template. You'll see that a lot later in the course, and I'm sure you'll get it... I don't have a very good mnenomic, but here's a bad one: present tense = now, and in "now" there's "o" (but alas, it's not an /o/ sound in English).
Thank you for your help. How can I have a typo when I press the buttons and not typing.
I am struggling with the Hebrew. The sounds are still new to me.
I am opened for suggestions.
