We are starting to study the personal endings - a widely used element of the Hebrew language.

The very first thing you heard in this course was the word with a personal ending: ? - How are you?. You saw the personal endings in another lesson when you learned that (my) is the combination of and the 1st person ending .

The personal endings can be applied to different language elements. For example, "my brother" is (ah sheli) or (ahi = ah + i). Or, (ha-bayit shelo his house) can be shortened to (beyto = beyt + o).

The lesson text is repeated for your convenience.
