*** Now talking in #IsraeliCafe
*** AlyzaCCC changes topic to "Hebrew 101: Lesson 3 review chat"
*** Ruth has joined #IsraeliCafe
AlyzaCCC: Shalom Ruth!
Ruth: Shalom
Ruth: There is a thunderstorm approaching. I may not be able to stay
AlyzaCCC: oooh, bummer
AlyzaCCC: Today is just review anyhow, nothing at all is new
AlyzaCCC: you know the lesson 4 web page has the letters, vowels, and part A vocab?
Ruth: I looked at Lesson 4 a little earlier today
AlyzaCCC: okay. Be sure to look at it again before Tuesday :-)
Ruth: ok
Ruth: I really like that feature where you can listen to the pronunciation.
AlyzaCCC: I think it helps, especially with so many regional accents where the written transliteration can be misunderstood
AlyzaCCC: Glad you like it :-)
Ruth: Yes, esp. for me who has never been exposed to Hebrew before.
Ruth: :)
AlyzaCCC: I have .wav files made for the entire lesson, but I have not finished typing the vocab for the other sections of the lesson
AlyzaCCC: :-)
AlyzaCCC: well, I guess we can get started chatting

AlyzaCCC: tov maod!
* AlyzaCCC is really proud of your progress Ruth
Ruth: I have a question please.
Ruth: :)
AlyzaCCC: sure, ga
Ruth: If I were to say "the teacher" would it be hamorah or ha morah?
Ruth: in other words is there a space?
AlyzaCCC: you mean, is there a break in the flow, or how is it transliterated?
AlyzaCCC: No space in Hebrew
AlyzaCCC: in english, sometimes it is written ha-morah, sometimes hamorah
Ruth: ok, I meant to ask when I emailed you. I think I may have put a space in that.
Ruth: thanks.
AlyzaCCC: with ha-morah it is easier to separate the prefix from the word, and see what is being said
AlyzaCCC: most welcome

Ruth: yes
Ruth: oh, that wasn't the answer LOL
AlyzaCCC: okay, good, just checking :-)
Ruth: התכב הדימלת ינא
