Thank you, Yaara. It's beginning to make more sense.

Hi Shelley Lynn,


Yes, now I understand the confusion. You're right, there are cases in which the usage is different. The only explanation I can think of (other than "that's just the way it is") is that the pronouns are used in the pattern "X=Y", like in "Nathan is a boy of twelve years" (ื ืชืŸ ื”ื•ื ื™ืœื“ ื‘ืŸ 12), that answers the question "what is X"; Unlike sentences that say something about a certain feature of X, like "Nathan is 12 years old" (ื ืชืŸ ื‘ืŸ 12), in which the pronoun is not necessary.

I know this explanation is a bit vague, I hope it was helpful none the less :sweat_smile:


Sincerely,

Yaara

yes, the examples that you gave are like English in their use of the pronouns, and that use is natural for me. However, I see the Hebrew usage as different. The pronouns in Hebrew usage seem to be redundant, i.e. Nathan he is a boy of twelve years and other examples that I cannot now express. Can you think of any sentences like these?

Hi Shelley Lynn,


The word โ€henโ€ in a sentence like this is simply unnecessary. Pronouns (like "hu", "hem", "hen" etc.) are not perfectly equivalent to "is", "are" etc. If you've already mentioned the person/object itself, the pronoun is not necessary. Here are some examples:

ื”ืฉื•ืœื—ืŸ ืฉื‘ื•ืจ (The table is broken)

ื”ืชืœืžื™ื“ื™ื ื—ื›ืžื™ื ืžืื•ื“ (The students are very smart)

Pronouns will be necessary in sentences like these:

ืžื” ืงืจื” ืœืฉื•ืœื—ืŸ? *ื”ื•ื* ื ืฉื‘ืจ (What happened to the table? *It* broke)

ื”ืชืœืžื™ื“ื™ื ื—ื›ืžื™ื. *ื”ื* ื™ืฆืœื™ื—ื• ื‘ืžื‘ื—ืŸ (The students are smart. *They* will succeed on the test)

I hope this answer is clear. Please let me know if you have any more questions!


Sincerely,

Yaara

Do I not need " chen", they, because the sentence is short and therefore understandable or does it have to do something with the word "cal", all.? Thank you, Yaara.

Hi Shelley Lynn,


Almost forgot!

"Whatโ€™s this? This is the dirty shirt. All the shirts are dirty! Put them in the washing machine, please."

.ืžื” ื–ื”? ื–ืืช ื”ื—ื•ืœืฆื” ื”ืžืœื•ื›ืœื›ืช. ื›ืœ ื”ื—ื•ืœืฆื•ืช ืžืœื•ื›ืœื›ื•ืช! ืฉื™ื ืื•ืชืŸ ื‘ืžื›ื•ื ืช ื”ื›ื‘ื™ืกื”, ื‘ื‘ืงืฉื”

Using ื”ืŸ is not a mistake, but it isn't necessary here. Good job!


Sincerely,

Yaara

Hi Shelley Lynn,


Thank you for posting.

You are right, using "ze" is not a mistake, it just creates a more full sentence.

The "non" in the notes should be "none", since it appears in the "gender" column. Thank you for bringing this to our attention!


Sincerely,

Yaara

This is a watch in the notes and lesson materials is spoken without the zeh in the lesson and line by line audio, But It's nevertheless correct to use zeh. It just makes a sentence.

In the notes, there is a typo on the chart non should be noun and in a lesson or two ago in the notes female is missing the "e".
