how to say “makes sense” in Hebrew

הֶגְיוֹנִי

The basic Hebrew word for to think is לחשוב .

For example:

אני חושב שכן.

I (a male) think so.

Another word for to think that has a more contemplative, meditative quality – to muse – is להגות . This word appears as such only in literary contexts – in everyday speech it means to pronounce. But להגותto muse – did make its way into words such as הוגה דעות – a thinker and הגיון – logic or common sense.

Likewise, something logical or something that makes sense is הגיוני .

For example:

המחיר הזה נשמע לך הגיוני?

Does this price sound to you (like it) makes sense? (spoken to a female)

After having studied literature and linguistics on the bachelors level and psychology on the masters, Ami decided to draw upon his hobby of learning languages, his understanding of human thought processes and his skill of explaining complex ideas in simple terms, to found a program that enables people to speak Hebrew with confidence.
