how to say “calculator” in Hebrew
|זוֹכְרִים אֶת אֵלֶּה?
(zoh-kheh-REEM et EH-leh)
One of the most commonly-used verbs in conversation, in both English and Hebrew, is to think – לַחְשׁוֹב (lahkh-SHOHV). The root of this active-simple פָּעַל Hebrew verb, ח.ש.ב (kh.sh.b), is also the birthplace of many other words, including to be considerate, account, math, the bill, and many others, including the word for calculator.
מַחְשְׁבוֹן (mahkh-sheh-VOHN) is a diminutive form of the word for computer, מַחְשֵׁב (mahkh-SHEV), which means, basically, thinking machine. מחשבון means calculator.
