Here is where I drew a poor picture of Chewbacca from Star Wars!!!
- He says: “Me Chewbacca”, which sounds like: meesh-pacha.
- I know, Chewy doesn't really talk, but give him a BIG hug, because he Is Family!!!
- vowels are: chireq, sheva, qamets, qamets. The sheva closes the first syllable. Qamets: The first is expected, as it is an open syllable. The second is really part of the feminine suffix qamets-hey, where hey is part of the vowel. I remember the two qamets by picturing Chewbacca offering me a cup of "tea", whilst his other hand also holds a cup of tea. The tea reminds us of the vowel qamets, which looks like a letter "T" in English.
- So don't forget! Chewbacca has two cups of tea, one for himself and one for you, and as he hands you your cup, he says: "Me Chewbacca", and gives you a BIG hug, because he is family!
- Shalom chaverim!! KEREN
I am a Mom and Grandma who began studying Hebrew to assist my understanding of the Hebrew praise songs I was singing for our Messianic Jewish Synagogue praise team way back in 2001. A home educator at the time, this quickly led to learning Hebrew in order to teach my children.
