ִI said את and it told me "almost correct", and it should've been אתה? Really? What if I am talking to a guy?
Maybe the verb conjugation was incorrect. אתה אוכל when speaking to a male, את אוכלת when speaking to a female.
Ah, right - thanks! I used הת and אוכל. :-)
I thought ה- implies feminine, except in cases ending in ת-?
Do you get a heart taken away for an Almost correct?
How is tomato pronounced?
You can get verbal pronunciations at Forvo. https://forvo.com/search/עגבניות, or עגבנייה. Basically pronounced agvaniah or agvaniote, depending if singular or plural.
Ok, thank you Linda. Much appreciated. !תודה
you say tomeyto, I say tomahto - let's call the whole thing off.
. For a change why not "אתם אוכלים" or"אתן אוכל"
Why was עגבנייה wrong? Why the ות at the end?
It's a plural. Also I think it's in the construct state, but that would relate to the first word, not the second, unless my grammar has escaped me completely. It means something like "salad of tomatoes".
Why isn’t it אוכלת?
The conjugation אוכלת would work with a feminine subject, here, either את (singular) or אתן (plural). For the former, אוכלת would be pronounced as okhélet, and for the latter, okhlót.
Why is אתה אוכל עגבניות סלט wrong? I thought the word order didn't matter.
atá ochél salát agvaniyót.
This confused me, aren't we supposed to add a ת for feminine verbs like in אתה אוכלת? At first I thought they got the two correct sentences mixed up with proverbs and verb endings?
The אתה is the masculine form of you and את is the feminine form of you, which is confusing, but this is why אוכל is using the masculine form of the verb.
Can't this be written in the plural?
