how to say “to count” in Hebrew

לִסְפּוֹר, לִמְנוֹת

How do you say to count in Hebrew? Two options: לספור
and למנות
, both simple verbs, the first of the root ס.פ.ר
, and the second, מ.נ.י
.

לספור is the everyday word, as in:

אני סופר את הימים עד החופשה!

I’m counting the days until my (the) vacation!

למנות is used in more formal contexts, as well as in its gerund form, מונה
meter/counter.

For example, a taxi driver might ask you:

מונה או מחיר?

Meter or price? (Counter or fixed price?)

Taxi – מונית
– also comes from the same root מ.נ.י.
