John: "Love you, my beautiful!"
(clicking sound)
ענת: גם אני אותך מותק. (gam ani otcha motek.)
John: "Me too, sweetie!"
אלון: יופי! הגיע הזמן שזה יהיה רשמי! (yofi! higi'a hazman sheze yihiye rishmi)

John: "How cute you are."

POST
John: Listen again to אייל (Eyal)'s post.
Katja: אוהב אותך, יפה שלי! (ohev otach, yafa sheli!)
John: "Love you, my beautiful!"
Katja: (SLOW) אוהב אותך, יפה שלי! (ohev otach, yafa sheli!) (Regular) אוהב אותך, יפה שלי! (ohev otach, yafa sheli!)
John: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "love you."
Katja: אוהב אותך (ohev othach)
John: This sentence is missing the subject,
Katja: אני (ani)
John: ...which means "I.” It makes the expression a bit more casual and less dramatic or romantic, but it’s still a lovely way to express emotions. Listen again - "love you" is...
Katja: (SLOW) אוהב אותך (ohev othach) (REGULAR) אוהב אותך (ohev othach)
John: Then comes the phrase - "my beautiful."
Katja: יפה שלי (yafa sheli)
John: This is a very romantic thing to say in Hebrew. Its meaning is "you are beautiful and you are mine.” In a more subtle manner, it's also saying - "to me, you are the most beautiful." Listen again - "my beautiful" is...
Katja: (SLOW) יפה שלי (yafa sheli) (REGULAR) יפה שלי (yafa sheli)
John: All together, it’s "Love you, my beautiful!"
Katja: אוהב אותך, יפה שלי! (ohev otach, yafa sheli!)
COMMENTS
John: In response, אייל (Eyal)'s friends leave some comments.
John: His girlfriend, ענת (Anat), uses an expression meaning - "Me too, sweetie!"
Katja: (SLOW) גם אני אותך מותק. (gam ani otcha motek.) (REGULAR) גם אני אותך מותק. (gam ani otcha motek.)
[Pause]
Katja: גם אני אותך מותק. (gam ani otcha motek.)
John: Use this expression to show your love.
John: His nephew, אלון (Alon), uses an expression meaning - "Good! It's now official!"
Katja: (SLOW) יופי! הגיע הזמן שזה יהיה רשמי! (yofi! higi'a hazman sheze yihiye rishmi) (REGULAR) יופי! הגיע הזמן שזה יהיה רשמי! (yofi! higi'a hazman sheze yihiye rishmi)
[Pause]
Katja: יופי! הגיע הזמן שזה יהיה רשמי! (yofi! higi'a hazman sheze yihiye rishmi)
John: Use this expression to celebrate.
John: His neighbor, אורלי (Orly), uses an expression meaning - "How cute you are."
Katja: (SLOW) איזה חמודים אתם. (eize chamudim atem.) (REGULAR) איזה חמודים אתם. (eize chamudim atem.)
[Pause]
Katja: איזה חמודים אתם. (eize chamudim atem.)
John: Use this expression to say someone is adorable.
John: His high school friend, תמר (Tamar), uses an expression meaning - "Take care of her! She's amazing!"
Katja: (SLOW) תשמור עליה, היא מדהימה! (tishmor aleyha, hi madhima! ) (REGULAR) תשמור עליה, היא מדהימה! (tishmor aleyha, hi madhima! )
[Pause]

ok lol-I wouldn't say beautiful to a man and would change it to handsome. I reread below and that is actually what I asked. I understand the other corrections. Thank you for another piece of the puzzle for the "et" issue.

Hi Shelley,


Thanks for posting!


a woman would say "אוהבת אותך! יפה שלי!" - (Ohevet otcha! Yafe sheli!)


1. .הגיע זמן שנתחתן. בוא נעשה את זה רשמי - the word "hava" (הבה) is kinda old fashioned, let's do x is usually said "בוא" additionally, נתחתן means "we'll got married" - it's redundant to say "אנו נתחתן".


2. את חברה אמא ואישה מדהימה - the adjective would appear in the end.


3. הכלבלבים שלך כלכך חמודים . תשמור עליהם - the 'et' doesn't belong here at all. we use it when an action is performed ON something "תזכור את הכלבלבים" = "remember the puppies"



Yours,

Roi

It's about time that we get married. Let's make it official. .הגיע זמן שאנו נחתן. הבה לעשות את זה רשמי


You are an amazing friend, mother and wife. את חברה מדהיםה אמא ואישה Does this hebrew sentence imply that mother and wife are also amazing like it does in the english?


Your puppies are so cute. Take care of them. .Can this sentence start without "et". Also do I need "haim" in there because there is no verb-a noun sentence? את הכלבלבים שלך כלכך חמודים . תשמור עליהם

Shalom Roi, A male is posting the first line, How would a woman change the words to post the first line? Would ohev change to Ohevet and she might say-my handsome? Would you show that in Hebrew please? Thank you.
