AlyzaCCC: tov maod!
AlyzaCCC: the reply continues
AlyzaCCC: .התכב תודימלת ןה
Greg3: Ken Talmidoat V'chetah ( I don't know the last word)
AlyzaCCC: okay, you have talmidot correct
AlyzaCCC: but the first word starts with a hey, and was in the previous sentance
AlyzaCCC: ןה
Greg3: right - blind tonite
Greg3: Hen
AlyzaCCC: right
AlyzaCCC: the last word is the prefix ב (bah) meaning in the
AlyzaCCC: ב
AlyzaCCC: _
AlyzaCCC: attached to .התכ keytah
Greg3: Question - here how can we tell the diff between a vet and a bet?
AlyzaCCC: keytah means class
AlyzaCCC: context
Greg3: ok
AlyzaCCC: so far we have not learned the vet so it is easy
AlyzaCCC: we only have the bet right now
Greg3: Oh. OK - well, hard to keep straight what I have learned where ;-0
Greg3: anyway
AlyzaCCC: understood
AlyzaCCC: .התכב תודימלת ןה
AlyzaCCC: now, please put it all together
Greg3: they are students (f) in the class - Hen talmidot b'keytah
AlyzaCCC: (BTW, I am 2 logs behind in putting things on the web, but I am working on it)
AlyzaCCC: tov!
AlyzaCCC: ?הרומ אוה ?אוה ימ :הרומ
Greg3: at some point I need to ask about how to get mirc on Mac since I have a friend on mac who'd like to join us
AlyzaCCC: the teacher is female in this story
AlyzaCCC: IRCLE works
AlyzaCCC: ask Dawn or Dave
AlyzaCCC: they use macs and IRCLE
Greg3: the third word - is it hoo?
AlyzaCCC: ken, hoo
Greg3: OK.
Greg3: Morah: Mee Hoo? Hoo Morah - Teacher (f): Who is he? (is) he (a) teacher (f)?
AlyzaCCC: ken, yafeh maod!
Greg3: what is yafeh?
AlyzaCCC: nice
AlyzaCCC: pretty
AlyzaCCC: yafeh maod = very nice
AlyzaCCC: .אל :התכה
Greg3: Hakeytah: Lo - The class: No
AlyzaCCC: exactly
AlyzaCCC: ?דימלת אוה :הרומ
Greg3: Morah: Hoo Talmid? Teacher: Who (is the ) student (m)
Greg3: no
Greg3: that's wrong
AlyzaCCC: right, it is incorrect
AlyzaCCC: can you fix it?
Greg3: Morah: Hoo Talmid? Teacher: he (is a) student (m)? (that doesn't make sense - I don't understand)
AlyzaCCC: okay, it is a question [is] he [a] student?
AlyzaCCC: it will be easier once we get the generic question word
AlyzaCCC: reminder: hoo = he, he = she
AlyzaCCC: so it is "MorAH: [is] he [a] student?"

AlyzaCCC: that should be
AlyzaCCC: .ילש אבאה אוה :דוד
AlyzaCCC: Greg, does the fixing of the typo help or do you need some assistance?

AlyzaCCC: yes, that is right
AlyzaCCC: and that means?
Greg3: ok wait
Greg3: He (is) the father of me (???)
AlyzaCCC: ken

Greg3: ok, wait
Greg3: that construction is what I didn't understand
AlyzaCCC: what about it, Greg?
Greg3: Why would you not say Hee Avi?
Greg3: hoo avi, I mean
AlyzaCCC: no, hoo means he
AlyzaCCC: and there are 2 ways to say it
AlyzaCCC: but we have learned only one
AlyzaCCC: the long form, using sheli
AlyzaCCC: okay?
Greg3: ok
AlyzaCCC: it is a standard possesive form, the other way, avi is the short form
AlyzaCCC: okay, we have some exercises
Greg3: why tho
Greg3: do you say Ha Abba (the father?)
Greg3: rather than
AlyzaCCC: well, sheli can be used in places the ending could not be used
Greg3: abba sheli?
AlyzaCCC: and we are trying to keep things siple
AlyzaCCC: because, with sheli you must use ha
AlyzaCCC: it must be definite
Greg3: Oh, OK. That helps
AlyzaCCC: siple = simple
