We’ll start introducing to you some basic Hebrew grammar that you can use right away. There are 10 pronouns in Hebrew – a unique word for each person. Yesterday, we learned the first 5 pronouns. We continue today with the remaining 5. There are basically three kinds of persons:
First Person(s) that are also called ‘Speaking.’ They are: I, We.
Second Person(s) that are also called ‘Present.’ They are: the four Yous (you guy, you girl, you guys, and you girls. We refer to them as: Masculine Singular (M.S), Feminine Singular (F.S), Masculine Plural (M.Pl), and Feminine Plural (F.Pl). This means that, unlike in English, every ‘you’ has a different name in Hebrew.
Second Person(s) that are also called ‘Hidden.’ They are: He, She, They (M.Pl), and They (F.Pl.)
Today, we’ll learn the next 5. As you can see, they are all singular.
We (M.Pl and F.Pl) – a•nach•nu, You (M.Pl) – atem, You (F.Pl) – aten, They (M.Pl) – hem, They (M.Pl) – hen.
Listen to the recording several times until you can say and recognize each pronoun.
