A couple of days ago, I asked my daughter's Hebrew teacher from last year. She responded that "Mah Choshevet At" was incorrect, not because it was wrong grammatically, but rather because if I talked that way in Israel, Israelis would laugh at me.
I thought this made for an interesting contrast:
o Beware The Arab Street: if you criticize Islam, The Arab Street will protest, get violent, and possibly kill people.o Beware The Israeli Street: if you speak Hebrew improperly, The Israeli Street will laugh at you.
So much for The Israeli Street.
Technorati Tag: Israel.
