how to say “certain places” in Hebrew
Nevertheless, certain places are מקומות מסוימים , where מסוימים has the masculine ים- ending. That’s because an adjective, the word describing the noun or thing, always takes on the true gender of the noun. And how can we know the true gender of the noun? By looking at it in the singular (although מקומות looks feminine, מקום is masculine, and that’s what determines the adjective).
Here’s an example:
There are certain places on the premises that smoking is allowed.
מסוים comes from the passive פועל verb form.
