how to say "sweetness" in Hebrew

having trouble seeing the print?


LAST DAY for the special discount on
Ulpan La-Inyan Fall courses!

As a way of wishing you a wonderful new year, here is a non-exhaustive list of words that come from the Hebrew root for sweet, מ.ת.ק (m.t.k). The nouns are all declined in the masculine singular.

מָתוֹק (mah-TOHK) - sweet
לְהַמְתִּיק (leh-hahm-TEEK) - to sweeten
מַמְתִּיק (mahm-TEEK) - sweetener
מַמְתַּק (mahm-TAHK) -
candy (a sweet)

מֹתֶק (MOH-tek) - sweetie (works for both males and females)
מְתִיקוּת (meh-tee-KOOT) - sweetness

שָׁנָה טוֹבָה וּמְתוּקָה לְכוּלָם!
(shah-NAH toh-VAH oo-meh-too-KAH leh-khoo-LAHM!)
A good, sweet year to everyone!
