How to Say “Triangle” in Hebrew – Ulpan La-Inyan

If we break down the English word triangle, we see “tri” meaning three, and “angle”.
Similarly, Hebrew’s משולש
comes from the word שלוש
meaning three:
למשולש יש שלוש צלעות ושלוש זוויות.
A triangle has three sides (“ribs”) and three angles.
Outside of geometry class, you’ll hear משולש
most often in the pizza shop, where people call a slice משולש
:
אפשר שני משולשים של בצל ופטריות?
Can I get two slices of onion and mushroom?
 
To create the word משולש
, Hebrew employs the
פועל verb structure, so that משולש
means literally something like “three-ed”.
