- leyv, lay-VAV, heart m לב , לבב
Lev sounds a bit like LOVE, and a heart is a symbol for “love”.
- To remember the vowels: think: “they see” (tsere, sounds like “they see” with their two little eyes) I'd LOVE to invite three veterinarians (our trick for vet vs. vav for the “v” sound) for tea. (qamets)
- The full spelling: לב LEYV: under lamed: tsere, which is two horizontal dots...they look like two little eyes!
- The full spelling: לבב ley-VAHV has a qamets (which looks like a small capital English T) under the first vet.
Remember to have fun with Hebrew today! They see I'd LOVE to invite three vets for tea!
