Hello again, everybody, Idit here! Thank you for joining me to Hebrew Top Words. Today, we are going to talk about 10 Must-know Autumn Vocabulary. Let's start!
(s'veder) “sweater”
So, obviously, (s'veder), sweater, make sense.
כבר מדדת את הסוודר היפה הזה?
(kvar madadeta et ha`sveder ha`yafe haze?) “Have you already tried on this lovely sweater?”
(gashum) “rainy”
אני חייב לחלק עיתונים בימים גשומים וימים סוערים.
(Ani khayav lekhalek itonim be-yamim g'shumi'im ve-yamim so'arim.) “I have to deliver newspapers on rainy days and windy days.”
And I also lived in the 1930s and wear casket hat and ride a bicycle and "Here ye! Here ye!"
(so'er) “windy”
The words so'er, is also, it's not necessarily just wind, but it can be like wind and rain and thunder and lightning, and just everything that has to do with a storm, because the Hebrew word for storm is סָ֫עַר (sah'-ar). סוער (so'er).
סוער בחוץ.
(So'er ba-khutz.) “It's windy outside.”
(stav) “autumn”
בספטמבר מתחיל הסתיו בחצי הכדור הצפוני והאביב בחצי הכדור הדרומי.
(Be'september matkhil hastav bakhatsi hakadur hatsfoni veha-aviv bakhatsi ha'kadur ha'dromi.)
“In September, autumn begins in the northern hemisphere and spring in the southern hemisphere.”
Yeah, that's kinda weird that it works like that, right?
Also, just so you know, the word for autumn in Hebrew, stav, is also a popular name for boys and girls.
(tsinun) “cold”
הצטננתי שבוע שעבר.
(hitstananti shavua she-evar. ) “I caught a cold last week.”
I did and it was really bad. Also, I feel like the word, tsinun, for a cold is kinda funny because you can't really say it when you have a cold. Tsidud. Tsidud.
(armonim) “chestnuts”
ערמונים בתנור הוא המאכל האהוב עליי
(armonim batanur hu hama'ackhal ha'ahuv alay) “Roasted chestnuts are my favorite food.”
Yeah, it's pretty good. I love, there's a french kinda pastry and it's called Mont Blanc, so fancy, and it's like, things and then you have a whole chestnut inside of it and on top of it, and you have like, chestnut cream and stuff. It's just... hmmm, yes!
חולצה עם שרוולים ארוכים/ חולצה ארוכה
(khultsa eem sharvulim arukim) “long-sleeved shirt”
חולצות ארוכות מתאימות למזג אוויר קר.
(khultsot arukot mat'imot le'mezeg avir kar.) “Long-sleeved shirts are good for cold weather.”
So sometimes, we kinda take shortcuts in Hebrew and just instead of saying long-sleeve. We just say a long shirt, instead of saying,
חולצה עם שרוולים ארוכים
(khultsa eem sharvulim arukim), we will say
חולצה ארוכה
(khultsot arukot), which is much shorter.
(shalekhet) “falling leaves”
השלכת גורמת לי לחוש מדוכדכת
(hashalekhet goremet li lachush medukhdekhet) “The falling leaves make me feel down.”
I don't know. I really love falling leaves, actually. I think it's so romantic and gorgeous. You don't get to see much of it in Israel, which is kinda funny because you have like a specific word, like a specific noun to describe falling leaves which is kinda cute, but yeah, I think it's beautiful.
ליל הקדושים
(leil hakdoshim) “Halloween”
So, the Hebrew name for Halloween is more accurate to translate as All Hollow's Eve which is, I guess the more proper name of the holiday, All Hollow's Eve, but you can shorten into Halloween. But in Hebrew, it's still like, All Hollow's Eve.
ליל כל הקדושים חל באוקטובר.
(lel kol hakdoshim khal be'oktober.) “Halloween is in October.”
(aleh) “leaf”
תראו, לא נשאר אפילו עלה אחד על העץ!
(tiru, lo nishar afilu ale echad al haetz!) “Look, there's not even a single leaf left on the tree!”
That's it for today. Thank you for listening to Hebrew Top Words again. These were 10 Must-Know Autumn Vocabulary. Please let me know what's your favorite season?? What's your favorite thing about autumn?
