how do you say “science” in Hebrew?
If you’ve got basic Hebrew, you know the expressions אני יודע and אני יודעת – I know, spoken by a male and a female, respectively.
She’s going to study life sciences.
You may have noticed that the י of the root י.ד.ע doesn’t appear in any of the examples above – להודיע, מודיעין and מדע. The letter י, indicating a sound that is sometimes like y in yellow (a consonant) and other times like y in very (a vowel), tends to disappear in some words and morph into an oh sound in others.
