how to say "to schlep" in Hebrew... (not Yiddish)


English doesn't really have a native word for this action, schlepping.

Luckily, Hebrew has its own authentic word: לִסְחוֹב (lees-KHOHV). For example, לֹא בָּא לִי לִסְחוֹב אֶת כָּל הַמִּצְרָכִים מֵהַסּוּפֵּר (loh bah lee lees-KHOHV et kohl hah-meets-rah-KHEEM me-hah-SOO-pehr) - I don't feel like schlepping all the goods from the supermarket.

This word falls into the simple (קל - KAHL) verb pattern. You can learn how to use this pattern here.
