Word of the Day Azov

If you ask an Israeli to repeat herself, she might ask you to leave.

Do you hate it when you miss something someone says and when you ask her to repeat it, she says “forget it”? Well, it’s even worse in Hebrew, where the equivalent is “azov” (ah-ZOHV, in the masculine) or “azvi” (ahz-VEE, in the feminine), the command form of la’azov, “to leave.” In other words, don’t just forget it; get outta here.
