how to say “pillowcase” in Hebrew

צִיפִּית

לצפות

, a פיעל verb, means to cover or to coat (also to anticipate). So it follows that a covering for a blanket or duvet might be ציפה
, while a smaller covering – say, for a pillow – might be ציפית
.

For example:

הציפיות בכביסה, לא לשבת על הכריות!

The pillowcases are in the laundry – don’t sit on the pillows!

Don’t confuse ציפית with ציפייה

– expectation, even though they’re both ציפיות
in the plural.
