"The boy is eating."
I am having a hard time with the boy part of this what is the letter after the Hey
What is difference between these letters? ' and י and ן and ו? I mean by sound, by meaning, by usage and by form. I'm really confused with these similar letters.
yod (י) has an "y" sound. Vav (ו) a "v", "o" or "u" sound (depending on the context) and (ן) is a final "nun" (נ), you can diferentiate it from vav because it goes "under" the line, it is longer. The final nun, as the name suggests, is a nun (a "n" sound) when it is at the end of the word (other letters have "final" versions too). Just remember that the smaller is a "yod", the middle is a "vav" and the longer is the final "nun". Take a look at the alphabet table to assosciate the letters to the sounds and during the lessons, will you decorate them. I hope i was helpful, good luck in your studies.
This is a hypothetical question. If a lion is watching a boy and wants to say to his hunting partner, "The boy is food", would he say, " אוכל הילד ?
