Learn Hebrew! It's easy!
« on: December 21, 2007, 03:17:55 AM »
Chaim always tells us: "Hebrew! Hebrew! Hebrew!"
So, I've started to post Hebrew language lessons for beginners on the European JTF Weblog!
It is actually very easy!

I hate to divert attention from your excellent blog, but we have a Hebrew Club on the forum. Is there at least four other members, besides myself, still interested in learning this beautiful language together?

The Hebrew Club is great!
What I am doing is complementary to the Hebrew Club.
I am uploading Hebrew lessons for beginners in audio format.
People can learn, than go on the Forum at the Hebrew Club and ask more knowledgeable members.

The Hebrew letter for the "sh" sound
is twin-sister with the Serbian
(in Cyrillic Alphabet) one: "Ш".

For the Hebrew plural form in "IM",
it is very similar to the Serbian one,
where "...ima", "...ama", appears when
giving a noun a plural, as in:

(mesec, pronounce "mesets",
meaning "month", like in Italian "meso")
which becomes:
(mesecima, "mesetsima",
meaning "months"/"mesi")
in its plural form.


when I say in Serbian "I give them",
it goes like this:
"Дајем ИМ"
"Dajem (pronounce "dayem") IM"...
This "IM" stands for MANY persons, a plural.


I add that we have here
a Semitico-Indo-European CONNECTION,
and it's FAR from being the only one:

Hebrew (Semitic) plural form "IM",
Serbian (Indo-European) plural form "IM, ...IMA, ...AMA",
and the English (Indo-European) plural form "thEM",
standing for the Serbian "IM".


Jews HAVE to learn Hebrew.
It would be a GREAT SIN
not to learn/know it.
As for us Indo-Europeans,
it's a GREAT bonus knowing it also.


Living in france,
Semitic Arabs are everywhere,
in the school, in the job, in the restaurant,
so that I happened to know some Arab (Semitic) words,
which are extremly similar to Hebrew ones:
salam, shems, maut, hayat,
leïl, liom, hob and so on.

"SHemS" meaning "sun", in Serbian "СунЦе" ("SunCe", pronounce "SoontSey"),
"maut" meaning "death", in Serbian "сМрТ" ("sMrT") ("MorT", "MuerTe" in latin languages),
"hayat" meaning "life", in Serbian "жИвОТ" ("zIvOT", pronounce "jivot") ("lIvET" in Swedish),
"hob" meaning "lOVe", in Serbian "љУБав" ("ljUBav", pronounce "lyoobav") ("lIEBe" in german)...


"Hussar alias Rac (Serb)"
"Hussar or gussar originally meant "a robber" in Serbian. These horsemen served not only under the Polish and Lithuanian colors but also under those of the Holy Roman Emperor;"
"Bardzo prawdopodobne, że początek swego istnienia husarze zawdzięczają Serbom. Po klęsce na Kosowym Polu w roku 1389 wszędzie szukali okazji do pomsty na Turkach.
Jan Długosz zapisał pod rokiem 1463, że w bitwie nad Sawą bił się Cohors Raczanorum (oddział Raców - Serbów). Po śmierci króla Macieja Korwina Serbowie udali się do Polski, aby kontynuować walkę z Turkami po usarsku."
"The hussar concept began in Serbia, near the end of the 14th century. In the 16th century, painted wings or winged claws began to appear on cavalry shields. Wings were originally attached to the saddle and later to the back. In 1645, Col. Szczodrowski was said to have used ostrich wings.
In 1500, the Polish Treasury books make reference to hussars. Early on, they were foreign mercenaries, and were called Racowie from "Rascia" a word meaning "of Serbia." They came from the Serbian state of Ras."
"Serbian Gussars"
"Les serbes avaient reconnu la nécessité d'une cavalerie légère, (...) ils développèrent leur propre cavalerie légère, les GUSARS ou USARS, d'où sont venus les hussards."
"Originaires de Serbie, les hussards furent des cavaliers d'élite, connus surtout en Hongrie puis en France, et imités par la suite partout en Europe."
"The area around the present Zorinsk (Ukrainia) belonged to the Serb Hussar Major Vuyich at the end of the 18th century."
" Arsenije III (...) was inaugurating new Serb infantry and hussar regiments that were sent to the ongoing war."
"Jan Długosz pod rokiem 1463 napisał, że w bitwie nad Sawą, biły się
"Cohors Raczanorum" / Początki husarii w bitwie na Kulikowym Polu
w 1389 r."
