how to say “usually” in Hebrew

בְּדֶרֶךְ כְּלָל, בְּאֹפֶן כְּלָלִי Yesterday we saw that דרך means path or way, as well as through. To create a term for usually, Modern Hebrew put together the words בדרך – on a path and כלל – general, so that usually is בדרך כלל – on path of general. This is similar to the Spanish generalmente – usually. For example: היא בדרך כלל מגיעה בזמן. She […]

how to say “through the internet” in Hebrew

דֶּרֶךְ הָאִינְטֶרְנֶט The Hebrew word דרך means path or way, but it also means through. I can’t help but wonder whether through comes from דרך – look at how similar the sounds d and th are, and how the coarse guttural kh sound is how gh used to be pronounced in English. Look at the German durch meaning by, through: these English and German words come […]

how to say “I’m living in…” in Hebrew

אֲנִי מִתְגוֹרֵר בְּ… The common expression for to live as in to reside is לגור, a hollow simple verb. For example: גרתי בארצות הברית. I lived in the United States. And לגור works for living at the moment as well: איפה אתה גר? Where are you (a male) living? / Where do you live? But another word, the reflexive […]

how to say “Turkey” in Hebrew

טוּרְקְיָה Turkey that gobble gobbles and is eaten on Thanksgiving is, in Hebrew, תרנגול הודו – literally, chicken of India (think American Indian). But the country Turkey is טורקיה. For example: יש טיסות זולות לאיטליה דרך טורקיה. There are cheap tickets to Italy via Turkey. Another spelling of Turkey in Hebrew is תורכיה, though טורקיה is […]

how to say “100%” in Hebrew

מֵאָה אָחוּז, מֵאָה אֲחוּזִים The Hebrew word for percent is אחוז, which literally means grasped or held: a percent is one grasped of a hundred. For example: האם אני רוצה לצאת לטיול? מאה אחוז! Do I want go on the trip? One hundred percent! Now, אחוז here appears in the singular. Also acceptable would be to write מאה אחוזים. And when the […]

how to say “city center” in Hebrew

מֶרְכַּז הָעִיר Growing up in LA where Downtown is not exactly the center of the action, I wasn’t exposed to the concept of a city center until I traveled as an adult. Even visiting Tel Aviv, there was Dizengoff, but a city center? I didn’t quite get the concept until I saw Europe. In Hebrew, the city […]

how to say “in advance” in Hebrew

מֵרֹאשׁ The word ראש – head – also means first or beginning in Hebrew. Take for example ראש השנה – Rosh Hashanah (the head/first of the year), בראש ובראשונה – first and foremost (literally, at the head and at the first) and ראשית המאה – the head/beginning of the century. So in advance or ahead is מראש. For example: כדאי להזמין כרטיסים מראש. (We) should […]

how to say “option” in Hebrew

אוֹפְּצְיָה, אֶפְשָׁרוּת Like many words that don’t appear in the Bible or the Mishnah,, the word option came to Modern Hebrew as אופציה. For example: יש לכם שתי אופציות. You guys have two options. A more authentically-Hebrew word, though, is אפשרות, deriving from the word אפשר meaning possible. For example: לאפשרויות נוספות, הקש תשע. For more options, press […]
