Introduction to the Hebrew Language: Hi and welcome to the lecture the Hebrew language. We'll talk about a bit of the history of the Hebrew language, some pronunciation notes and male and female related stuff. Now, if you want to just get to actually learning conversational Hebrew, then you can skip to the next section. Otherwise, here we go. Okay, so I've been about the history of Hebrew. So Hebrew is historically regarded as the language of the Israel Lights and their ancestors . The earliest examples of written in Hebrew date from the 10th century B C. Today he re spoken by total of 10 million people worldwide. He proceeds to being everyday spoke a language somewhere between 204 100 psi, and in the 19th century it was revived as a spoken and literary language and has become, as of 1998 the language of five million people worldwide. Today, I said it's about 10 million. The United States has the second largest haber speaking population, with over 1/4 1,000,000 fluent Tabor's bakers. Modern Hebrew is one of the two official languages of Israel, the other being modern standard Arabic, while pre modern Hebrew is used for prayer or study, in Jewish communities around the world today. The Torah, the pent attack, the 1st 5 books and most of the rest of the Hebrew Bible is written in biblical Hebrew, with much of its present form, specifically the dialect that scholars believe flourished around the sixth century BC around the time of the Babylonian captivity. For this reason, Hebrew has been referred to by the Jews as LaShawn Cordish, meaning the holy Tongue, by the way, modern Hebrew, pretty modern Hebrew and biblical Hebrew, their old very, very similar. For example, in Israel, you don't study all three languages. You just study Hebrew and by knowing Hebrew, then you can pretty much understand and raid in prayer books, the ones that were mentioned above and in the Bible. Okay, so hey, bru is written from right to left. There are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet, and there are five final letters. The five final. It is our letters that when they come in the end of a wood, I read it differently. They're still pronounced the same, but they're just written differently if they come in the invalid. Hebrew has three verb tenses past, present and future and As a rule, every Hebrew word has a three letter route. It's called a shoe wish that creates a semantic relationship between words. Okay, just a few pronunciation notes in Hebrew. There are two letters that don't have an equivalent in English. What? The first letter is the letter yet again. Effect. So sometimes people write it just within H hit and sometimes with a C H, which is not to check, but it's hit. So in this course, all just right. The fete as in hate with an apostrophe. So whenever you see this hate with the apostrophe, that's the letter fit. Another letter it doesn't have an English equivalent is the Hebrew letter. Sadiq Sadiki, sometimes ridden T zed and sometimes just said it's pretty similar to the sound in the word pizza. So that's the Tadic pizza. So it will be reading here as T Z. So if you see these TZ, that's Hebrew Letter Sadiq and finally male and female. Now, unlike English, there a lot of forms of male and female, so in English. If you say I'm going somewhere that would be relevant for both male and female in Hebrew, it would be different you would be a neat hole. That would be a male thing I'm going or a neat hole if it that would be female Sam going now. Most words that are feminine end with a syllable Hey! Or with a letter. Tough. So as an example, Zoellick, which means to throw So Zoellick would be the male form, meaning a male is throwing. And Zoellick it would be the female form. So male will say unease. Aleck and a female will say needs a wicket, which finishes with a tough now singular words are made plural by adding a suffix whose form is determined by the gender of a singular form. Now the plural suffix added to masculine form is in. So if you take the words awake, so if it's a group of guys who were throwing something, then you would say ZOLL Kim with the addition of the I am of the at the end, that's for a masculine form. The plural suffix to a feminine form is what so singular form female singular form will be silicate and plural would be zero coat. So that's the addition of the art at the end. Okay, so in the next section, we're actually going to stop speaking Hebrew. See you soon 3. Body Parts: Hi and welcome back in this section, we're gonna talk about body parts both internal and external. So let's take a look. So this this is the human body. More Elice. So most of the organs body parts of the same for male and female. So let's take a look. So it started from the top. The head is rush. Repeat after me who wash that's head going down below that we have a neck which in Hebrew is called. It's a valve again. Savo going further down. We have our chest which also is the same word in Heber for breast. She's has it. What? Is it going further down? We have our arms. So the single is Zohra Zo. Uh and the plural is zat Zo art. Further down we have s stomach which is called Betton Betton. And if you flip around, then you have our back which in Hebrew is called God Gove going further lower a little bit . So the male Penis is called pin pin and the female vulva, which is commonly mistaken for vagina, is called put so it's pin and put coming down. Furthermore, we have al legs which in Hebrew is called regular. That's in single form and a lime is plural, so it's regular and a line. So let's let's take another quick look. So this is a wash. We'll test you. This is a go on. Say it. Wash one of these. So when you say it line you can read out like the line. What is this better? Betton? How about this? That is Has it has a and this over here and neck. Ceval, serve out. Okay. Now let's zoom in onto the face, which is called pending. So the actual face the entire head is called wash and the face is called Panin. So let's see the different paths in the face in the honeymoon. So on top of the faith you have hair which is called set our sit up below that you have a Metsa Men. Now you have some more hair here. But this time it's the eyebrows. So that would be called guy. But that's plural. Go, but single would be go back. Gaba and I is called I'm, which is also Hebrew for a sunny side up because it looks a bit like the human eye and plural would be a nine. A name okay and nose is enough. Uh, your mouth is called a pick pit, which is like the letter. Pay my teeth. Are she nine? That's plural. She name. And one tooth would be Shen shin. And finally the chin, which is called Son Till Santel. So let's do a quick revision. What's your forehead? Cold? You can read it at what is practicing. It's metta and I I'm That's right. And both eyes are a nine. Your chin is a san tell san tail and your mouth is a pair. Your teeth are where they called she name and your hair. The beautiful hair style, as in this image is set. If it's long, hair would be South Pole. Oh, being long and short hair is the Al Catala Catala, meaning short? Okay, let's move along to some internal organs. So starting from the left top left, this, as you can identify, is a more, more, more. What's next? We have a live live following. We have the liver, which is coveted, coveted. Next we have the kidneys, which is called clay Out. Actually, clear out is plural one. The single form would be killed. Kalia, your lungs are called. They thought, Hey, what? And your digestive system, which has a few organs in that we're not gonna get into them is called Maria Effete, which is a system. My effort, huh? E cool. The digestive, the system, digestive. So that's the digestive system again. So we have more. Say it with me. Live, then. Excuse me. Coveted, then play out. Then they ought. And my breath it huh? E cool. Well done. So there is our the human body parts facing. 4. Medical Treatment : Hi. And welcome back in this video, we're gonna talk about medical treatments and how you can get some. Of course, the subtitle is a joke. Um, well, my note always be, actually, that hopefully for you specifically. Okay. So some things that a good to know if you want to go to a medical clinic, then that would be called in Hebrew Mile pit. Say it with me as usual. Okay. On the right, we have a doctor which in Hebrew is called ho Fit. Well, fit. As you can hear, the word model and offer might sound similar. Remember, we spoke that at the beginning that every Hebrew word has a three letter route. So the root off milpa and often have the same route pay a puppet. So it makes sense because they're both talking about the same thing. So we have again. A medical clinic is my PETA. The doctor is off it. A patient is called holy holy, And the actual word hola means both patient. And it also means ill. So saying any hola, Meaning I'm ill and saying any holy would mean I'm the patient. So holy patient or ill on the right we have some medicine medication which in Heber was called Tau Alpha Tau Alpha. And continuing from the bottom left, we have a hospital which is called bait Holim Bait. Holim. So Bates is a house and Holim is plural for Holy. Remember what Hola means means the patient. So it's the house off the heel of the house of the patients. Okay. A nurse is called hot for a female or us for male, which actually is the same word for brother and sister so hot. If you're speaking medically, then it's a nurse. But ah, hot can also mean your sister and us is medical nurse, male nurse or it means brother. Okay, If you need surgery, then you wanna have a surgeon. And that is a midnight Met Na and an ambulance is called. Well, ambulance. It has another name, which is Nyjah debt. Letty, pull the mats. But no one would call that, especially not if you're in an emergency. You just say ambulance and it's clear and it's common commonly used. Okay, let's continue to some terms that you should know if you ever get sick. Hopeful leader. It Okay, so first of all, I'm sick, which means a knee holy that's for mail. Holy is for male and hola is for female as any holy or a Nicola. If you just don't feel well, you would say a knee low morale Gish dove. That's for a male or for female. You would just change the word Mar Gische to Margie Sha so side along with me. And if you're a male Samar Gish And if you're a female same monkey shop Any law, Margie. Okay, something hurts and you want to tell someone the doctor or your friend What hurts? So you would say my hurts like right, Like my head hurts. My arm hurts. My leg hurt. So in Hebrew, it's structured slightly differently. It's called EV Lee, huh? And then you can add in whatever you want. So it would be Karev is painful. Lee is to me how it is the So if you want to say I have a headache, you would say Call Everly, Huh? Bush, right. If you want to say, let's go back a few slides back to the previous video and we can look at some options. So you would say co Everly uh, pit or Co Everly Half Or you could say co Everly Eyewash or co evilly Tibetan. My stomach hurts or co Everly Gove, my back hurts or co Everly, how legal my leg hoods. Okay, so that's cool. Heavily. Not yet. Be there in a second, Corelli, huh? And it's something really hurts. You can say May God go every Meharg Meaning Very okay, if you want to point out to to a certain place because you don't know what it's called You would say co Everly or my Lord Coe Everly can. And then you could just point out to whatever it hurts because can means here. So my Lord Coe every can would mean it really hurts here, then point out to whatever is is hurting. So the Lord is very co Everly kind. Okay. Now, if you're in serious pain, you want to make an appointment to the doctor? He would call up the clinic and you would say if shall lik var told if Charlotte locavore toll if 1000 is may I lik var is to set and told his appointment so if shall lik var toe you know How would you say that if you wanna be slightly more polite. You would say, If shall Vaca sha like Votto, may I please make an appointment? If you want to ask if there's something available, you would say Yes, tall pen. We, Penry means available, told Means appointment. And yes, meaning is there. So you would say Yes, tall Hanoi. And if you're really in pain and it's urgent, you might say the hoof, the hoof, the hoof or then the hoof. Okay, let's get going. And that's that's making some Hebert. So now I'm not going to show you the translation. I'll show that to you. Once we go over the Hebrew, I want to challenge you a little bit. Let's see if you can make it out. I just wrote who the patient and what and who The clinic it's So this is a phone call that a patient is making to a clinic. Shalom Co ev Lee. How they get if shall live. Akasha Lacovara Toll LA office. So the clinic replies. Ken, Yes, really tall Beersheva had bad. What's that? So the patient answers.
