Usage notesEdit

  • As with other feminine loanwords from Aramaic, the Academy of the Hebrew Language recommends [1] that פסקה be written with a ה (h, hei) at the end, rather than with an א (ʾ, alef) (as in Aramaic). Nonetheless, the Aramaic spellings are still common today sometimes more common than the recommended spellings. In many cases the different plurals are used interchangeably.
