Hebrew to English translations [Non-PRO] Art/Literary
Hebrew term or phrase:Vakasha
I know it is a hebrew word, I have seen it broken with 'be' in front of it...but I'm unclear on what it means by itself
request, part of the word in hebrew used to say please
Explanation: The second letter in the hebrew alphabet is either pronounced like a "b" or a "v". The word bakasha means request. To make it mean "please" we add a "b" in front to make it "with" or "by" request, but then to avoid confusion the first letter is pronounced like a b and the second like a v. which makes it into bevakasha = please.
