how to say “just a second” in Hebrew
The unit of time called the second is called such because it’s the second unit of time after the minute. Its Hebrew translation, שנייה , conveys the same meaning, coming from the word for two – שניים .
There are sixty seconds in a minute.
For example, if your phone connection is subpar, you might say:
Just a second, I can’t (don’t) hear. (spoken by a male)
שנייה also means second as in:
She’s (the) second in line.
