REMARKS

  1. Letter H means the guttural sound we find in the German noun Bach or in the Spanish letter J as in noun dibuJo.

  2. The same sound for the group kh.

  3. As regards the Pronunciation line: vowels do follow their classical way and not the particular English way: i (and not ee) stands for sound ee; u (and not oo) stands for sound oo; e sounds as e (as in bed and not as i as in to be) ...

  4. Also in the Pronunciation/reading line: hyphen is used with ha- article and in some other cases so to avoid an English misreading: look at word 293.

  5. (e) means lack of vowel: only the consonant before (e) is then read or pronounced. Look for a sample at noun 77 or 78.

  6. The group gi has always to be read as in English verb give. Look for a sample at word number 325.

  7. Letter s between vowels is always to be read as ss: look at word 328.

  8. In the LITERAL TRANSLATION, the hyphen - means that in the Hebrew the words are written together, as if they were a single word.

  9. The sign @ means that the corresponding Hebrew has no equivalence in English. Look at the translation of the fourth sentence.
