Word of the day: طبخ (Tabagha, to cook)

leave a comment »

طبخ (Tabagha) means to cook.

Cook (noun) in Hebrew is טבח (tabagh). Note that the ט (tet) corresponds with the ط (Taa). (The ت usually corresponds with the ת, tav).

However, the Hebrew ח (chet) is usually reflected by an Arabic ح, not خ. The Hebrew counterpart of the خ is usually the כ.
