No, נשים is the irregular plural of אישה, which is feminine. So the verb gets conjugated in the third person feminine plural.
Although the suffix ים is used to form most masculine plurals, it doesn't always signal a masculine word. For example, city names are always feminine in Hebrew, even though ירושלים ends in ים. There are also masculine names with a "feminine ending". For example, the plural of the masculine word שבוע is שבועות.
In typing in Hebrew, It keeps telling me I've misspelled the word. They do not leave what I typed up so I can see what the mistake is but tell me I am wrong when I am fairly sure I'm right. I have trouble hearing the words clearly so when I put something in and I check it against what I typed (I copied it directly from words I have written down) and it has all the same letters as the word they tell me is correct, I find them the same.
That's odd, because for me the app always tells me what I typed. Moreover, it underlines the misspelled word! (I do prefer to use the web version, but I believe the same is true for the phone app.)
I tend to make one kind of mistake more often than I'd like: when I intend to type מ I sometimes type ת by mistake, because they're right next to each other on the keyboard. And because they look roughly similar, I don't notice.
Then when I get the dreaded red background I look at the underlined word in the correction, and say to myself, "How can that be wrong?" Until I look more closely, that is, and finally catch my error.
I have been at this unit for about an hour and altho I feel I'm beginning to grasp the sounds and have corrected letters that have looked extremely similar, I found I needed to quit as I can't hear or see anymore And I have to be somewhere shortly. How does that effect the lessons?
Maybe you're projecting?
There are others who say the exact opposite of what you are saying. So, who is right? Often times, what we see is what we want to see. If you manage to separate yourself from labeling others and reading between the lines, you might actually see that not everybody is out to get you.
without labeling we cant see the world aright. to do away with generalization you lose truth and reality. just because someone says something means nothing -is that person seeing truth or spouting crap? if everyone simply sees what they want you are implying there is no freechoice and no learning. i dont believe everyone is but some are and have gotten me already and this is what i fight against. its interesting you have a sheep for an icon
It's interesting that a person obsessed with labels doesn't see that I have a llama on my profile picture, not a sheep.
It made me think. Who knows how many people you've mislabeled like that in your life and you put them in a box and completely missed out on an opportunity to learn something from them. If you did, you might realize that the world is not black and white and that there are nuances.
And once again. This sentence is about sight. It's a simple sentence helping us practice all the verb forms - in this case the masculine and feminine plural forms. That's it. There is nothing sexist about it.
