Topics Definition of Modern Hebrew Words
By Jeff A. Benner
The Modern Hebrew word for an "airport" is שדה תעופה (sadeh t'uphah). The Hebrew word שדה (sadeh, Strong's #7704) means "field," and תעופה (t'uphah), which is a Modern Hebrew word, means "aviation." This Modern Hebrew word is derived from the Biblial Hebrew verb עוף (Ah.W.Ph, Strong's #5774) meaning "to fly." Therefore, a more literal translation of שדה תעופה (sadeh t'uphah) would be "aviation field."
