מְלוֹן פְּאֵר A Hebrew student recently said to me, over lunch, אני אוהב לאכול מָלון. He meant to tell me that he’s likes eating melon (מֶלון), but what came out was I like eating a hotel. We had a good laugh. A luxury hotel is מלון פאר, as in: אין לנו תקציב למלונות פאר! We don’t […]

how to say “to honk” in Hebrew
