Its called self pleasure


ha-banána shelí te'imá.


when do i use טעים and when טעימה


You use טעים when the noun is masculine and טעימה when it's femenine, in this case, בננה is femenine, so you use טעימה


How do you know when a word is masculine or femenine?


In most cases, the rule is that when a word ends in either ה or ת, the word will be feminine. If it ends in any other letter, it will be masculine. BUT, there are also exceptions to this rule. With those words, the only way to know is by memorizing them. There is a post here on Duolingo called "misleading genders of Hebrew words" which lists those exceptions:


well that escalated quickly


למה לא "בננה שלי טעימה"? למה אני צריכה "הבננה..."?


From Modern Hebrew grammar book by Lewis Glinert: ה, ‘the’ is added to the first noun, because ‘my dog’ means ‘the dog of mine’.


It's the grammar rule, I know someone explained it in another question the linguistic details of it, but it's really saying... The banana of me.

    When do you use טעים vs. טעימה ?


    Taim is singular masculine, taima is singular fem.


    If you're a guy , taim you'd use it for I, & male singular you, taima. I spoken by a female, and female singular you.

    This is all in the tips and notes.

    "adjective is a word which describes a noun. In Hebrew, the adjective follows the noun it describes and agrees with it in gender and number."
