עברית (Ivrit) – Facts about the Hebrew language
Hebrew is the official language of Israel. Approximately 5 million people speak Hebrew as their first language in Israel and a further several hundred thousand live in the West Bank and in Jewish communities in various locations around the world.
Hebrew is a Semitic language of the Afro-Asiatic language family. As a Semitic language, it is related to Amharic, Arabic and Aramaic although none are mutually intelligible. Hebrew is commonly regarded to have two main groups of dialects: Ashkenazi Hebrew, a dialect is spoken by Jews of European descent, and Sephardi Hebrew which is spoken by Jews whose ancestors came to Israel from Middle Eastern countries. Standard Hebrew is considered to be an amalgamation of features from both groups of dialects.
Hebrew is written from right to left. The Hebrew alphabet of twenty-two letters (five of which have a different form when they appear at the end of a word) consists entirely of consonants. A pointing system comprising small dots and dashes placed above and below the consonants was devised around the fifth century to indicated vowels and syllabic stress. This system continues to be used today but generally only in education materials and prayer books. Only rarely are they used in commercial material or the media and then only in instances where they may be ambiguity otherwise.
