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.
(lecha) - to you (to a guy)
(lach) - to you (to a girl)
(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.
(dai) - Enough! Pronounce it like the word "die" but a bit sharper to emphasize the "eee" sound at the end. This can get confusing because if you frustrate an Israeli, often they'll tell you to cool it by saying dai... which could be easily misinterpreted by an English speaker! And they say many of the world's conflicts come from communication problems...
(chet) - sin. Usually translated as "sin" but its real meaning is closer to "mistake" or "miss."
(goy) - Nation, people, or gentile. Originally the word just meant "nation" but over time in the sense of "other nations" it came to also mean a person who wasn't Jewish.
Still following the K, L, M pattern we have Chaf/Kaf, Lamed, Mem...
