Mem & Yud

By Jeff A. Benner


מ The "mem" is pronounced "m" as in mother.

ם The "final mem" is the same letter as above, but is the form of the letter used when it appears at the end of a word. The pronunciation is the same as the "mem" above.

י The yud is pronounced "y" as in yes. When the yud is added at the end of a word it means "of me" or "my".


אִ The Hhireq. This vowel is pronounced "i" as in machine.

אֵ The Tsere. This vowel is pronounced "e" as in grey.
