Hi Steve,


Thanks for commenting!


Pronouncing the Hebrew R can be challenging, and from my experience especially for native English speakers.


You should try, of course, to pronounce it correctly, but you will be probably understood even without a perfect pronunciation - we call it an accent ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„


Enjoy learning Hebrew with us!

Yours,

Roi

It sounds like Raba has a little bit of a 'trill' at the start - should I try to imitate that as well? Those type of sounds and the words that use the back of the throat are pretty different from American 'southern' dialect. Thanks!

Hi Gail,


Thanks for commenting. Let's try to sort things out -


"To thank" is "ืœื”ื•ื“ื•ืช (lehodot), and like always when it's a verb conjugated to the first person talking ("I") it beginns with a 'ืž (mem). as in the example - 'ani mode' when the speaker is masculine, and 'ani moda' when the speaker is feminine.

additionally, we can alternate the last word - "to" (lakh/lekha) - to match the gender of the person we are talking to. "lekha" means to you when the other person is masculine, and "lakh" means to you when the other person is feminine.


here are the 4 options (they all mean "I thank you):

ani mode lekha (male to male)

ani mode lakh (male to female)

ani moda lekha (female to male)

ani moda lakh (female to female)


I hope it's clear now :)

I donโ€™t understand the gender changes in the phrases. I understand that โ€œdahโ€ is thank and preceded by โ€œtoโ€ is you. But I donโ€™t see how that translates to ani(I) mo ( me) and if masculine speaker the โ€œdahโ€ changes to โ€œdeโ€ and what is Lecha?

Feminine: Ani moda lach. Again what is โ€œlachโ€?
