Confused[edit]

I was unaware that my browser can't display Hebrew properly. Now I am sad. Please cry for me. - Misha

Niqqud[edit]

As a stupid English-speaker, I'd appreciate having the Niqqud on the Hebrew name Gershayim. Thanks to anyone who can do this for me.

Yes check.svg Done
Thanks for the question.
There are two possible vocalizations for this word and both are somewhat unusual. גֵּרְשַׁיִם‎ appears in Even-Shoshan and in Bahat and Mishor and the tzere vowel is not quite regular. Gesenius-Kautzch-Cowley seem to prefer grashayim (גְּרָשַׁיִם‎). The latter is also used quite often in modern speech, though gershayim is more common. I'll try to ask the Academy of the Hebrew language for a clarification. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 14:09, 20 April 2010 (UTC)
