|Lesson 6 introduces the rule of prepositions combinations.
In addition, the
lessons introduces the vocab and the forms to express existence or lack of items (there is a cookie in the jar, there is no
cookie in the jar).
Combination of prepositions:
When the preposition
"Beh" (in/at) is used for a definite noun, two things happen:
1)The Hebrew definite article "Ha" is dropped.
2)The preposition "Beh" (in/at), gets the vowel of the "Ha" and
Existence of items/Lack of items:
To express existence the term
"Yesh" is used.To express lack the term
"Ein" is used.
There are students here.
There are no students here.
In Hebrew there is the same simplicity when a reference to a different location is made (for example over there, or there).
There are students there.
There are no students there.
If there is any confusion at this point it is only in English. That is because the word "there" means two different things.The one at the beginning of the sentence means existence (and is followed by
is/are).The one at the end of the sentence means location (a distant location).
There (location) is translated as "Sham".
There (existence) is translated as
