First, "slach li" and "slicha" are used identically. The difference is the "slicha" actually means "sorry", and "slach li" is identical to "excuse me". Note that "slicha" is general, and can be used to approach anyone, but "slach li" is used solely to approach a singular male listener. The feminine version is "silchi li", and the plural (both genders): "silchu li".
"Shmi" is not affected by the gender of the speaker. In general, possession in the first person ("my...") is not affected by gender.
I hope that helps, and that you will continue to enjoy and discover our website!😄
I have a question, I thought excuse me was slikha but here it is S'lach li, what is the difference? Also not quite finding the difference between female pronunciation and male, for instance is it shmi Danielle too or is shmi only for men?
There is so much I still need to discover on your site. Love it though!!!👍😄

"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?
