תעתיק של הכתוביות בעברית

אהלן חברים
האם המילה “קרחת” קשורה למילה “קרח”?
על פניו, ברור שכן
תסתכלו על השורשים
הם אותו שורש – ק.ר.ח
אבל מה?
האות ח, שהיום רוב האנשים מבטאים אותה כ-KH
פעם ייצגה שני צלילים
KH ו-H
ו”קרֵחַ” ביטאו אותה עם H
אבל לא ברור אם “קֶרַח” הייתה
עם KH או H
אם היא הייתה עם KH
אז היא בעצם שורש אחר
ולכן המילים לא קשורות
מה האמת?
אין מספיק מידע כדי להכריע
טוב, זהו חברים, להתראות

 

 

Transcript of English subtitles

Hi friends
is the word קרחת – baldness, related to the word קרח – ice?
on the face of it, obviously yes!
if you look at the roots (of the two words)
they are the same root – ק.ר.ח
however…
the letter ח, which today most people pronounce as KH
once represented two sounds
KH and H
קרֵחַ was pronounced with H
but it’s not clear if קֶרַח was
with KH or H
if it was with KH
then it is actually a different root
and therefore the words are unrelated
what’sthe truth?
we don’t have enough information to decide
okay, that’s all friends, see you later
