Lamed

Lamed

doesn't look much like the letter L, but L actually came from , which is of course why they have the same sound. We don't have too far to look to find a way to remember this one: the criss-cross shape of the letter reminds me of lightning:

Now let's try some reading practice again.

(gal) - Means wave.

(lalah) - Means nothing whatsoever in Hebrew, although it's sort of an English word in such linguistic staples as the phrase "lala-land."

(lailah, pronounced lie-lah) - Means night.

(luh) - Means "to."

(lo) - Means his as in "his car," or to him.

(lah) - Means her as in "her car," or to her.

Still following the K, L, M pattern we have Chaf/Kaf, Lamed, Mem...
