שלום הנוך!


almost :) it's חנוך


I dont know why violin was pronounced with a ח sound. I thought it sounded like a guitar and a donkey חמור


It is kinor but when you have a prefix (like ו, ל or ב), in proper Hebrew, letters like כ, פ, ב change their pronunciation from k, p, b to ch, f, v respectively. So, when it's just כינור, you pronounce it as kinor, but here וכינור it's pronounced ve-chinor. That being said, this is considered formal and in everyday speech it is not used, and it would always be ve-kinor.
