Etymology 1Edit

Compare with Egyptian pj (this).


פֹּה ()

  1. here, this place, at this place, in this place
    אתה גר פה?‎ — atá gar ? — Do you live here? (addressing a man)
    נצא מפה בעוד חמש דקות.‎ — netzé mi b'ód khamésh dakót. — We'll set out (literally leave from here) in five minutes.
    באתי לפה לפני שעה.‎ — batí l' lif'néi sha'á. — I came here (literally to here) an hour ago.
Usage notesEdit
  • Unlike English here, Hebrew פֹּה is not used by itself to mean “to this place”; for that, the preposition לְ־(l'-, to) must be added (as in the third example above).
