how to say “about to” in Hebrew
Different languages have different ways of expressing that someone is about to do something. Hebrew’s way is to say literally, standing to: -עומד ל if it’s a male doing the action, and -עומדת ל if it’s a female.
I’m about to get on a plane, I’ll get back to you (a male) when I land.
עומד and עומדת are variations of the simple פעל verb לעמוד – to stand.
