Time is the twenty-seventh skill (assuming read left to right) in the language tree for Hebrew. It has ten lessons and teaches vocabulary related to time, including months of the year and days of the week.

Grammar NotesEdit

Dual formsEdit

Once upon a time, Semitic languages (like Hebrew) had three different numbers: singular, plural, and a dual. They quickly fell out of use with the exception of some body parts that naturally come in twos (such as hands and feet) as well as time expressions, which are still used in Modern Hebrew.

These time expressions (two days, two years, etc.) have a special plural form for two: יים-. This ending is used for both masculine and feminine nouns. Because of this, saying two + a plural form is incorrect for these terms.
