173

173.
That's the number of verbs we have learned to date in Hebrew. Now, that may not seem like a lot to most of you. However, you must remember this. For every one verb you must count:
-the infinitive form
-the four present tense forms (masculine singular, feminine singular, masculine plural and feminine plural)
-the nine past tense forms (I, you - masculine singular, you feminine singular, him, her, we, you masculine plural, you feminie plural and them)
-and now we are learning the eight future tense forms (I, you - masculine singular, you feminine singular, him, her, we, you masculine/feminie plural and them)
By my calculations that's 3806 words. And that's only VERBS!!! Man Alive! It's like they have a different word for EVERYTHING!!
