התושבים הראשונים היגרו מאסיה לאמריקה. באלסקה וביוקון מצאו אתרי מגורים בני עשרים אלף שנה לפחות, ועד ארבעים אלף שנה לפי כמה הצעות / הערכות.

ביל חבט את המתכת עד שהיה שטוח, בועד שסילביה קפצה מעל הגדר בסוס. רבל תודא שתלך עם האופניים שלך לידך לפני שהכדור ישרק מבעד החלון.


I'm not sure about Semitic languages, but my sense is that to translate your sentence to Romance or Slavic you would have to completely restructure it, which is what I've tried in my tentative Hebrew translation. I had never reflected on English's transitive verbs this way before.

(Yes, above is what I'm offering up for translation as well).

אני לא בטוח לגבי שפות שמיות, אבל התחושה שלי היא שכדי לתרגם את המשפט שלך לשפות רומאניות או סלאביות, אתה צריך לסדר אותו מחדש לגמרי, שזה מה שניסיתי לעשות בהצעה שלי לתירגום לעברית. קודם לכן אף פעם לא חשבתי על הפעלים היוצאים של האנגלית בדרך זו.

I wish your father had been there. He would have been so proud of you! All your efforts paid off in the end.

הלוואי שאביך היה כאן. הוא היה כל כך גאה בך. בסופו של דבר כל מאמציך נשאו פרי.


He had been visiting her family repeatedly for months before they agreed with the wedding.

הוא ביקר את משפחתה חזור ושנה במשך חודשים טרם הם הסכימו לחתונה.

The mind, as if shy, freezes on close inspection.

המחשבה, כאילו בישנית, קופאת לאחר בחינה מדוקדקת.


On the surface, he seems to be a shallow and careless guy, but once you dig deeper and see beyond the veil of his appearance, things look way different.

A thought is similar to a shy person. It freezes upon a thorough examination

למראית עין הוא נראה בחור שטחי ורשלני אבל ברגע שאתה חופר קצת יותר עמוק ומסתכל מעבר למראה שלו, דברים נראים שונים לגמרי.


For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.

כי לא לאוזני לחשת, אלא ללבי. לא את שפתיי נישקת, אלא את נפשי.


The sheer force of his presence was mesmerizing.

כוחה האדיר של נוכחותו היה מהפנט.
