TIL words such as בעלי (my husband) and אשתי (my wife) aren't used much anymore and people prefer the more neutral בן/בת זוג (at least when it comes to secular Israelis)

I didn’t know they didn’t use it anymore. For me, באל is easier to remember, because it also exists in Arabic بعل, although it is also not very much used nowadays.

I guess it's because בעל also means "master, owner"...

משהו is pronounced /ˈmaʃu/ and מישהו is pronounced /ˈmiʃu/ in colloquial speech

Maybe in certain circles (more narrow than just all secular Israelis). In my experience the use of בן/בת זוג is more limited and tends to conform to where people would use "partner" in English.

Yes, part of the broader phenomenon where [h] tends to disappear in speech.

Yes, but that would leave us with /'maʃeu/, which I think is also a common pronunciation. What surprised me here was the loss of the /e/ as well

I'm about to start Chapter 6 :partyhat:

Apparently Hebrew has different words to talk about the in-laws:

חם (father-in-law - in relation to the bride)
חמות (mother-in-law - in relation to the bride)
חותן (father-in-law - in relation to the groom)
חותנת (mother-in-law - in relation to the groom)

However, Colloquial Hebrew only mentions חותן/חותנת as general words for father-in-law/mother-in-law. So, I wonder if Israelis actually still make these distinctions...

Hey there! Can I join you guys? I'm using Giore Etzion's "Introductory course in Modern Hebrew" and I've recently made it to unit 7. :partyhat:
I'm using it for self-study, though, so it'd be really nice to interact with someone else in Hebrew here, so as to get some more much-welcomed practice.

I just hope you don't mind if I actually use Hebrew characters like some other folks have done before? I'm really not that big on transliteration, in general. :wink:
