DaveS: I told my keyboard that; it woul;dn't listen
AlyzaCCC: also, there needs to be a hey at the end
Ruth: My keyboard disobeys all the time too.
AlyzaCCC: because you have just said she is the student (m)
Dawn: ?
AlyzaCCC: yes Dawn?
Dawn: So in this case does the hey mean "a"?

AlyzaCCC: ?הרומ תא ?תא ימ --
AlyzaCCC: Ruth
Ruth: Who are you (F)? Are you a teacher?

AlyzaCCC: now, since the word aht is used, is it moreh or morah?
Ruth: morah.
DaveS: morah
AlyzaCCC: tov
AlyzaCCC: good
DaveS: (Dave hopes he won't flunk for copying Ruth)
Ruth: me too.
AlyzaCCC: (note, as the word 'at' is used, teacher is feminine, hence 'morah')
AlyzaCCC: see, context tells which one is meant
AlyzaCCC: אמאה ימא .הרומ אל ינא ,אל --
AlyzaCCC: Dave again
DaveS: No, I am not a teacher. I am a mother.

Ruth: ok
DaveS: !
Ruth: I am the mother of sherah?
AlyzaCCC: right!
AlyzaCCC: Dave?
DaveS: Ruth answered
Ruth: :)
AlyzaCCC: notice that again, from context, we know that the person is female, so the word for teacher in the first sentance was morah
AlyzaCCC: ?הריש ימ --
DaveS: !
AlyzaCCC: the second word is the same name as the last sentance
AlyzaCCC: ga Dave
DaveS: Who is Cheri
