how to say “poet” in Hebrew
We’ve seen that שיר means song, and שירה means poetry.
What did the poet intend with this poem?
In the word משורר you can see what looks like a four-letter root: ש.ו.ר.ר , yet the root of שיר is ש.י.ר . Here we see a a tendency in Hebrew to double the last letter of a root (in this case the ר ), if the middle root letter is a י or ו (almost-vowels).
