AlyzaCCC: okay, Arlene, please say something to Greg that he can respond to
Arlene: I did!
Arlene: in what language :)
Arlene: ok, one sec
AlyzaCCC: I know, Arlene!!! I am glad you did your homework, I just wished the rest of the class who were not on vacation or overly busy had done it too
Arlene: I was out of town a lot too
Arlene: should I just ask a question using transliteration?
Greg3: guilt does not become you, Alyza ;-)
Arlene: that's not guilt
Arlene: Ahnee po kee Ahnee talmeedah bahkeetah shel Alyza.
Arlene: Alyza hamoreh shehlee
AlyzaCCC: Greg, I am not down on you, it is just frustrating when you have a class of 9, and only 2 do the homework. It is not guilt, or I would not have said anything about those who were overly busy or on vacation
ASTRO: ahlan
AlyzaCCC: okay, Arlene, how about in Hebrew characters?
ASTRO: lamdu oty ivrit
ASTRO: u wanna learn?
AlyzaCCC: הזילע = Alyza
AlyzaCCC: Astro, I want to teach, the others want to learn
ASTRO: theres no hebrew here!
ASTRO: whats a prob....
Arlene: well, then a lot of cutting and pasting then, one moment please
AlyzaCCC: yes, there is, Astro, just use a Hebrew font
AlyzaCCC: no problem, Arlene, I expect a wait
Greg3: Well, while you're c&P, you said "I am here because (for) I am a Student (F) in the class of Alyza (in Alyza's class)
AlyzaCCC: sure, Greg, we have the vocab for that
Greg3: That's what Arlene wrote in transliteration
AlyzaCCC: Greg, why don't you do that sentance for us :-)
Greg3: I'll do a different one since that's what Arlene is C&Ping
AlyzaCCC: oh?
Arlene: .הזילע לש התכב הדימלת ינא יכ הפ ינא
AlyzaCCC: I thought Arlene was working on a different sentance.
Arlene: wow, that's takes a little while
Greg3: OK - do you want me to do something else?
AlyzaCCC: Greg, what did Arlene just say
AlyzaCCC: ?
AlyzaCCC: Greg, say something to Arlene
AlyzaCCC: in Hebrew
Greg3: OK - just a sec
Greg3: while I cut and paste
AlyzaCCC: no problem

AlyzaCCC: much better, thanks Arlene
AlyzaCCC: indeed :-)
Ruth: Am I supposed to answer or translate? or both?
Arlene: go for it
AlyzaCCC: Ruth, could you please translate it, and then answer it
Ruth: ok
Ruth: Who is the teacher of mine?
AlyzaCCC: right!
Arlene: in french qui is who, which is probably what throws me off
AlyzaCCC: ah
Arlene: or Who is my teacher?
AlyzaCCC: I understand, it is the language data base thing, all foreign languages seem to blend together
Ruth: ילש הרומה הזילע
AlyzaCCC: right, Arlene. Ruth's translation is literal, yours is what one would expect if that question was being translated for a book
AlyzaCCC: tov maod!
AlyzaCCC: Greg, what did she say?
Greg3: Alyza is my teacher
AlyzaCCC: right
AlyzaCCC: Ruth, please ask Greg a question
Ruth: ok
AlyzaCCC: Ruth is about to ask Greg a question in Hebrew
Arlene: Another way of answering the question could be: .ןילרא לש הרומה הזילע
AlyzaCCC: right, Arlene
Ruth: ?התכה לש םידימלתה ימ
AlyzaCCC: Geg, what did Ruth ask you?
AlyzaCCC: Greg
AlyzaCCC: I mean
AlyzaCCC: oy
Ruth: Arlene, is that your name in Hebrew?
Arlene: no one moment I will write it in hebrew
Greg3: Mee hatalmeedim shel hakeytah? WHo are the students of the class?
AlyzaCCC: המחנ לדייא
Arlene: you have it!
AlyzaCCC: yep, I have a list of Hebrew names in a text file
Arlene: Aidel is actually Yiddish and Nechamah is hebrew
Arlene: saved me a cut and paste job
AlyzaCCC: which explains why I did not know what the first one was
Ruth: What is this? המחנ לדייא
Arlene: my name.
AlyzaCCC: it is Arlene's name
Arlene: the other was Arlene using hebrew letters
Ruth: OH!
Arlene: "Arlene"
AlyzaCCC: Greg, tov maod
AlyzaCCC: could you answer her in Hebrew
AlyzaCCC: hold on, I will give you the name list
AlyzaCCC: off course, you need to add "I" for yourself
Greg3: ok - hold on
* Arlene is holding on :)
Greg3: ונחנא
AlyzaCCC: rega = moment (rega rega means just a moment idiomatically)
Greg3: oops
Greg3: wait
Greg3: c&p is misbehaving
Greg3: ונחנא
Greg3: sorry
AlyzaCCC: it happens, try again
Greg3: התכב םידימלתה ונחנא
AlyzaCCC: tov
AlyzaCCC: you could also have pasted Arlene and Ruth's names, followed by v'ani
Ruth: v'ani?
AlyzaCCC: and would have been equally correct
AlyzaCCC: and I
Greg3: Could have, but WAY TOO LAZY for that much c&P ;-)
AlyzaCCC: I
AlyzaCCC: lol
Ruth: lol
AlyzaCCC: okay, brrrriinnnnngggg
AlyzaCCC: class dismiessed
Arlene: class is over?
Greg3: dismiessed? Is that an Ohio Hebrew accent? ;-)
AlyzaCCC: I will try to have the new vocab on the web site under lesson 4 by tomorrow, but no guarentees, as the upload is not working
AlyzaCCC: that is a typo, Greg, yet another in a long series of them
Greg3: Alyza - I was making a FUNNY :-) SMILE :-)
AlyzaCCC: I will also put up last Sunday's and today's log, and everyone will know the answer to the homework then (as my time permists)
AlyzaCCC: Shalom all, hope to see you at the quiz in #JewishStudies
