how to say “frozen” in Hebrew
If you’re like me and like warm weather, raise your hand.
The Hebrew word for frozen is קָפוּא.
קפוא comes from the active-simple פָּעַל intransitive verb to freeze – לִקְפּוֹא.
I froze from (the) cold.
Mind you, that’s to freeze – just to freeze.
But to freeze something else – that’s לְהַקְפִּיא, an active-causative הִפְעִיל transitive verb.
The wind froze the dripping water.
Likewise, a מַקְפִּיא is a freezer.
Here’s a song by Danny Sanderson with the word קפוא in it. Enjoy!
