Today, let's look at a couple more in Hebrew:
עתה: ah-TAH, means "now"
אתה: ah-TAH means "you"... masculine singular you, that is.
Do you see how the word meaning "now" begins with the ayin? Remember, we learned to associate ayin, which means "eye" in Hebrew with a silly word picture, phrase, etc. as a mnemonic for the Hebrew vocabulary? Okay, how's this: NOW you see it, NOW you don't! (and we SEE with our "eyes"- ayin)
And the word meaning "you" begins with the aleph. Remember, we learned to associate ALEPHant, a silly play on the word, elephant, as a mnemonic for words with aleph. Think: YOU are as smart as an ALEPHant!)
So to review:
עתה ah-TAH (with the ayin): NOW you see it, now you don't!
אתה ah-TAH (with the aleph): YOU are as smart as an ALEPHant!
And, of course, if you say them both together: !אתה! עתה would translate: YOU! NOW!
L'hitraot! V'Shabbat Shalom!
