how to say “to cling” in Hebrew

לְהִיצָּמֵד

Ever use cling wrap – ניילון נצמד
– that clings to everything but what you want it to cling to, so that you end up with an annoying mess? Choose your brand carefully.

ניילון
(nylon) is the word Israelis use to refer to transparent, flexible plastic. נצמד

means clinging, while to cling is להיצמד
– a נפעל verb.

For example:

החולצה הזאת נצמדת לגוף.

This shirt clings to one’s (the) body.

להיצמד also means to stick to, so that a tour guide in a busy city center might say to her group:

כולם להיצמד אלי.

Everyone (to) stick to me.

and, as you’ll hear on the Hebrew version of Waze:

היצמד לימין.

Keep (to the) right.
