"S'lach li" and "Slichah" are identical in meaning, but "slach li" can only be used when talking to a male person. The parallel phrase for a female is "silchi li". Slicha is general and doesn't specify any gender.
"Toda" as a noun (meaning something like: "gratitude" or the actual action of thanking someone) is a feminine one. There is no need to conjugate it and it remains identical no matter to whom we talk. BUT - it matters what gender we are.
The verb "to thank" can and is conjugated according to gender: "I thank" (when I'm a male) = אֲנִי מוֹדֶה, "I thank" (when I'm a female) = אֲנִי מוֹדַה
I hope that's clearer now, please let me know if further clarification is needed.
Glad to hear that!

Hi, these are very useful words and daily phrases, that I only spoke about two or three to my Israeli collegues and they were impressed that I could respond in a given situation, this can motivate me to put in more effort, thank you support team.
What is the difference between "S'lach li," as shown above, and "Slichah" (סְלִיחָה)? Do they both mean excuse me?
Also, this word list says "todah" (תודה) is feminine. What does this refer to? The speaker or the listener (or maybe neither)? Does the word change when saying "thank you" to a man vs. to a woman?
Hi shulamis levy,
Thanks for posting! 😄
Unfortunately, I don't really understand your question, can you elaborate a little more on what you want to achieve?

Thanks for posting your question.
The difference between "shmi" and "ani" is simple - just like in English, you could introduce yourself in a few ways:
shmi = my name (is)...
Ani = I am...
Hope it's clear now :)
What is the difference beteween "shmi" "ani" for I'm??
When I use it in both cases..
Hi James ,
Thanks for commenting!
Well, as a default, Hebrew is usually taught in the early stages using mostly the singular masculine form, as this is the basic form of all verbs and most words, but I can assure you that the feminine case isn't going to go unattended 😄, it'll be explained in detail over the next lessons.
Hope you will continue to enjoy learning with us!
