The language of ivrit ( עברית ) Genesis 6, DTube Video #4

in #dtube5 years ago (edited)

Welcome to my Hebrew reading & language series.

Continuing with Genesis 6:15-17

Today we have a description of the measurements of the ark, the levels, and the declaration of what will come upon the earth.

I was able to highlight the markings needed for pronunciation and use them in the video today. I review the English interpretation, right to left before getting into the Hebrew.

You may notice that many of the words in this reading end with hey, which is normally silent at the end of a word. Notice how many of these occurrences have "her" in the English interpretation. The final hey can mean many things, but today we see it meaning "her" related to the ark (a feminine word) and, in one case, the final hey means "in the direction of" or "towards" - I said, "from the bottom up" when looking at how the ark should be finished.

I will be explaining more about genders for words in future lessons. For now, be advised that they exist. As a native English speaker, I had difficulty thinking of things like tables and cups being male of female. It seemed complex for no reason because I had grown up with the table and a cup until I learned my first Latin language. Hebrew may be a precursor to other languages, so it makes sense that things, living or not, would be a "he" or a "she"

What is your native language? Do you have genders for things in it?

Learning Hebrew explicitly will help structure further associations with Israelis. It will make it less demanding to construct a relationship of comprehension and trust, which can be vital in framing a business relationship. Knowing a couple of words or expressions in the language of alternate business party exhibits that you are happy to place yourself in their position, comprehend their way of life and right now input some exertion into the relationship. In the event that it's not semantically uneven, it has a higher shot of being commonly useful business-wise.

Note: To achieve that you don't need to become familiar with the entire language. A fundamental dimension or a couple of key expressions and words would be sufficient to establish a decent connection. There is no assurance that individuals around you will communicate in English. It is I think the most well-known unknown dialect and presumably most of individuals would have the fundamental order of it as it is instructed at schools from early age just as generally present on TV (by means of movies and shows) and radio. Notwithstanding, haven't we as a whole "learned" German or French at school? Frequently this learning may not yield great outcomes or convert into talking.

that is great writing experience .that is great hebrew lesson and important language.
Thanks @hebrew
