How to say "butter" in Hebrew.

Though much more commonly found in Modern Hebrew and translated as "butter", this word is occasionally found in Biblical Hebrew as well. For example Bereisheet (Gen.) 18:8. But there it is often translated as "curds" and not as butter. Probably since butter was not common in the warmer climate in the Land of Israel in the days before refrigeration.

How to say "gloves" in Hebrew, including audio:

How to say "gloves" in Hebrew:

This word is clearly related to "kaf yad" (a hand) and "l'hitkofef" to bend over. Compare that to the word "glove". Where does that come from?? See how logical Hebrew is? :-)

How to say "house" or "home" in Hebrew.

A great word for both Biblical and Modern Hebrew. And easy to remember since it sounds like the letter "bet", which sortof looks like a house with the door open on the left.

Watch out for the kamatz katan on this one, but otherwise not hard to remember.
 
How to say "Headphones" in Hebrew.

The key to remembering this word is to know that "ozen" means "ear". So think of these as "little ears". (And it is a "kamatz katan" under the alef, which is pronounced "oh" and not "ah".)

A good word to know, but the root of the word relating to round or circular things is even more important.
 
How to say "Earring" in Hebrew.

This Modern Hebrew word is actually from Biblical Hebrew. Though it is apparently only rarely used in the Tanach, you can see it in Bamidbar (Num.) 31:50. The root is related to עגול which means round or circular.
