Hi Shelley,


Thanks for your comment.


I agree that maybe using 'set' in this context is not the usual phrasing, but you would be understood just fine.

Set in Hebrew uses mostly for stuff like CD boxes, or a matching collection of items, but here serves as something similar to ืžืืจื– - package.

Hi Roi, I think what is disturbing me is that you include it, "set," in the sentence. Is it common to do so in Hebrew? We never include it in english with food. We always just say hamburger special with salad and cola and leave out set- or you could say combo hamburger, salad, and coke special. Does " set" mean combo?

Hi Shelley,


Thanks for commenting,


This word - ืกื˜ set - is borrowed from English, and has the same meaning - "set", like in "set of matching chairs".

Many new words are incorporated into Hebrew the way they are, and this is one good example.

Shalom Roi and Mval, I am confused by "sat" "samech tet" in the sentence below. I have looked it up in the dictionary but don't understand how it is used in the sentence. Would you please explain. Thank you.

Good to have you back! Thanks for commenting and sharing your ideas.


I will forward your concerned about the voweling of these cases.

as for your translation - almost correct - the correct translation would be :

ื”ื•ื ื”ื•ืœืš ืœื”ื–ืžื™ืŸ ืกื˜ ื”ืžื‘ื•ืจื’ืจ ืžื™ื•ื—ื“ ืขื ืกืœื˜ ื•ืงื•ืงื” ืงื•ืœื”

Hi, after a couple of months without hebrewlearning I am on again!


I am now trying to figure out verbforms. I have bought a book called 501 hebrew verbs (Barron) and a little book by Rut Avni called Modern Hebrew verbs step by step. So this is my first day trying to interpret the conjugations of the verbs. I began with two of pod101s lectures, listening comprehension for absolute beginners with Gabriella, lesson 6 and 7. I think I have found the times and the genders of the verbs, but I am unsure of some of the forms, as I cannot find the forms with the same niqqudim (vowelmarks) as in the grammarbooks I have bought. I understand that the vowelmarks is of great help, when one is to descide which binyanim the word belongs to.I do not have the niqqudim signs on my computer so I try to describe vowels by naming them in my examples:


In this lesson (no 7) the first verb 'ื ืžืฆื' is in present 3 masc singel and I think probably in the nifal conjugation. If so: there is a difference in niqqudim: Barron has a qames, your site lesson 7, the text, has a patach as third niqqudim (under the tsade).


The next verb with different vowels are ืœื”ื–ืžื™ืŸ. To me it looks like a Hifil form and infinitive. Am I right? At your site there is a tzerei under the lamed, a patach under the hey, a compound shewa under the zayin. In Barrons grammar it is a shewa under the lamed, a patach under the hey, a shewa under the zayin. Same problem with vowels different from hebrew grammars also for ืชื‘ื—ืจ ( I think this word is ment to be in future 2 person masc singel binyamin paal?). It seems like understanding conjugations is quite important in hebrew, and that the niquddim follows strickt rules? Please correct me if I am wrong.


This said: Its good to be back, and I look forward to continue learning with you!

Best regards.

Hi Shelley,


Thank you for posting!

Regarding "le" - when choosing between two options, you can use the expression ...ืœื‘ื—ื•ืจ ื‘ื™ืŸ ... ืœ, which means "to choose between ... and ...". It literally means "between ... to ...", hence the ืœ ("to").

You can also say ...ืœื‘ื—ื•ืจ ื‘ึผึฐ... ืื• ื‘ึผึฐ, meaning "choosing X or Y".

Regarding the word "set" - it appears in the Hebrew sentence as ืกื˜. However, in Hebrew it is usually used to describe a kit or a group of object that belong together (like "I bought a dining set" - ืงื ื™ืชื™ ืกื˜ ืฆืœื—ื•ืช).


Keep staying away from fast-food restaurants :wink:

In the fourth line of the dialogue would you please explain the use of "L" The sentence is a choice between chips or salad. Why is the vav and vowel for "or" not used?

The 2nd sentence in the dialogue is translated into English using the word "set" which does not appear in the Hebrew sentence. Thanks in advance for your reply.

I think I found the word "set" confusing as we do not typically use this word in English in restaurants. We do order the special, or the salad special. But I am not familiar with a lot of fast food restaurants. I still understood the lesson, but found the male speaker too fast for me.
