I saw that בטרוף came up a lot, but I didn't see it in the Morfix dictionary, so I couldn't determine what the vowels were, so I'd be grateful if someone could tell me. Is this a common enough expression that Morfix should list it? Is it an expression that you would use?

AlanF_US wrote:(1) I'm a little confused by how to refer to in-laws. I see the following terms for "my daughter-in-law":
But "my sister-in-law" is גיסתי. So I would think that "בת גיסתי" would mean "my sister-in-aw's daughter", which would probably also mean "my niece". But since the word "אחיניתי" means "my niece", maybe that frees up "בת גיסתי" to mean "my daughter-in-law"?
Also, doesn't כלתי mean "my bride"? I understand that marrying a woman includes "marrying" (marrying into) her family, but I'm surprised that there's no way to distinguish between one's new wife and the new wife of one's son (or daughter).
I have the same question for חתני, which seems to mean both "my son-in-law" and "my groom".

I like courses that are immersive, but I worry about how grammar in particular is presented. Are those sections in English?
How have you found the use of Hebrew in the textbook?
