how to say “to wonder” in Hebrew
The Hebrew word for to wonder is לִתְהוֹת.
In English, we use the verb to wonder to express not only genuine wonder, but also to make a polite request, such as I was wondering whether you’d be able to pick me up on the way to work. Such an expression in Hebrew might replace the wondering with I wanted to know:
I was wondering why they hadn’t arrived yet.
The root of לתהות is ת.ה.ה (t.h.h) and is an active-simple פָּעַל verb.
To wonder, in Hebrew, is different from a wonder. The word for that is פֶּלֶא.
