la-khalom


Explanation:
(a) dream = khaLOM (masculine noun)
khet-lamed-vav-mem
חלום

dreams = khaloMOT
khet-lamed-vav-mem-vav-tav (this is an irregular form)
חלומות

to dream = la-khaLOM (la- = to; and it's 'kha' because it's a guttural conconant)
lamed-khet-lamed-vav-mem
לחלום

For \'conconant\' read \'consonant\' - sorry.

Dare (imperative) =
ha\'EZ (masc. singular)
ha\'IZI (f. sing.)
ha\'IZU (m. pl.)
ha\'EZna (f. pl.)
