There are bees in every place should be acceptable answer

Possibly, but it is worth learning that בכל מקום is the idiom for "everywhere".

I'm covered in beeeeeees!

(I am so delighted to find an Eddie Izzard-worthy sentence in Duolingo!)

לא תמיד טוב - יש דבורים קטלניות!

Is bee masc or fem? Would it be דבורים כועסים או דבורים כועסות?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dsjanta

l דבורה is fem, so it would be דבורים כועסות

Well, as there is דְּבוֹר drone, you could say דְּבוֹרִים כּוֹעֲסִים angry drones too.

דבורים is correct.

I am interested in the correct pronunciation of דבורים . In both Duolingo and Forvo, I do not hear the ד sound. Am I hearing this correctly? Thanks,

Roland, I hear it in Duolingo, maybe try listening with headphones? I don't trust forvo to be honest, I've heard too many English speakers mess up pronunciation in English (and I'm a native speaker). I presume it's the same for other languages.

You can try one of the sites listed here https://www.pealim.com/articles/links/ that has audio or the transliteration of the word.

(ANKI also has downloadable vocab files with audio for Hebrew).

ll "דבורים" appears to have the same root as "דבר" (thing or word) and "דבור" (speak). Does anyone know the connection between them?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IngeborgHa14

Well, in different Semitic languages the first consonant alternates between [d] and [z], so some think that the word if of an onomatopoetic orign.
