"הנאום שלו נמצא בכיס המעיל."

Translation:His speech is in the coat pocket.

September 12, 2016



I think my answer (his speech was found in his coat pocket) should be considered correct, at least due to the fact that "was found" is an alternative translation of נמצא.

Suppose the keynote speaker, at the last minute, could not find his speech! He's anxious and furious, and then someone else finds it in his coat pocket???


Was is past tense.


but means also was found, not only is found נמצא https://www.pealim.com/search/?q=%D7%A0%D7%9E%D7%A6%D7%90
