Learn the Hebrew Alphabet - Lesson 10
Zayin & Pey

By Jeff A. Benner

Consonants

ז The "zayin" is pronounced "z" as in zebra.

פ The "pey" is pronounced two different ways. If the letter appears with a "dagesh" in the middle of the letter (), it is pronounced "p" as in pet (This form of the letter is called the "pey"). If the letter appears without the "dagesh" (פ), it is pronounced "ph" as in phone (This form of the letter is called a "phey").

ף The final "pey" will never include a dagesh in the letter and so will be pronounced "ph" as in phone.



Vowels

אֳ The Hhataph qamats. This vowel works the same as the "sheva" with a pronunciation of "a" as in father.
