Hebrew = King and the letter ך
Hello everyone, I'm learning the word "king" in Hebrew which is "מלך" but I can't find the name of the letter at the end... Can someone help me please? Thank you!
It is a Chaf Sofit, or final chaf. When chaf כ is at the end of a word, it is ך but it is the same letter. A bit like how capital letters look different in English, a few letters in Hebrew have final forms which are used at the end of a word.
You're welcome! mem מ mem sofit ם, phey פ phey sofit ף, tzadik צ tzadik sofit ץ are the other letters with final forms (hope I didn't leave any out).
