how to say “to get used to something” in Hebrew

 

having trouble seeing the print?

לְהִתְרַגֵּל
 
 
The other day I introduced the Hebrew word for habit, הֶרְגֵּל listen and repeat. A related word worth knowing is לְהִתְרַגֵּל listen and repeat to get used to or become accustomed to.
An example:
 
הִיא כְּבָר תִּתְרַגֵּל לַחוֹם הַתֵּל-אָבִיבִי.
She’ll get used to the Tel Aviv heat.
 
להתרגל is a reflexive-intensive verb. You can learn how to conjugate it here. Its root is ר.ג.ל (r.g.l) meaning foot or leg, the same root as that of the word רָגִיל listen and repeat meaning regular:
 
כְּשֶׁמִּתְרַגְּלִים לְמַשֶּׁהוּ, זֶה הוֹפֵךְ לִהְיוֹת רָגִיל אֶצְלֵנוּ.
When we get used to something, it becomes regular for us.
