English term or phrase: going
it is going to rain
Smadar
Hebrew translation:'omed laredet geshem
Explanation:
Geshem means rain.
To say it is raining, one uses the expression "yored geshem," literally, "rain is descending."
"Laredet geshem" means "to rain."
"Omed" literally means "standing," but is used idiomatically to mean "it is about to..."
"Omed laredet geshem" it is about to rain is closer to sense of "it is going to rain" than the alternative "yered geshem" or "geshem yered" "it will rain."
