Hi Jeannet Benschop,


Another clarification -

There are many words that are still pronounced as "ey" and can't be pronounced in any other way, such as "ื”ื™ื›ืŸ" "ื‘ื™ืฆื”" and many more. I would avoid "learning" the rule by your Hebrew teacher and leave that issue for a stage in which you can talk fluently and "learn by ear"...


Yours,

Hi Jeannet Benschop,


Thanks for posting this question.


Well, it's true that many "Ey" sounds have gotten softer during the last decades, and that many times we do 'flatten' the "ey" to "E", but it's definitely not true that it's wrong to pronounce it this way and you will be 100% understood. Even when pronouncing "ey" as "e" one must remember what the original sound was and it's expressed a little bit so that it's pronounced as something in between...

You must learn it in the "Ey" way though, as otherwise, you'll have a real difficulty in writing words that you hear and we want to develop a correct understanding of the written and spoken language.


Hope that's clear...

I have a serious question on words like ืœืคื ื™, ื‘ึผึตื™ืŸ etc.

I recently heard from an Israeli teacher that the 'ey' sound in 'livney' or in 'beyn' should no longer be used. She says that it should now be 'lifne' and 'ben' instead (just like the e in ben/son).

I am confused, because in your lessons you clearly use the ey sound, and so I do in other up to date sources.

Shalom!
