how to say “loneliness” in Hebrew

בְּדִידוּת

The Hebrew word for lonely is בודד
when referring to a male, and בודדת
or בודדה
when referring to a female.

For example:

לפעמים אני מרגיש בודד.

Sometimes I feel lonely.

Likewise, בדידות
is loneliness, as in:

אם אתה חווה בדידות, אתה לא לבד.

If you experience loneliness, you aren’t alone.

The root of these words is ב.ד.ד
, which is also the root of לבד
alone. But what happened to the second ד
in the root? Watch today’s video to find out.
