how to say "deadline" in Hebrew


having trouble seeing the print?
מוֹעֵד אַחֲרוֹן, תַּאֲרִיךְ אַחֲרוֹן, תַּאֲרִיךְ יַעַד

You're very likely to hear Israelis says דֶּדְלַיִן when referring to the cutoff point we call in English a deadline, but there are proper Hebrew terms as well, in widespread use:


מוֹעֵד אַחֲרוֹן - final time

תַּאֲרִיךְ אַחֲרוֹן - final date

תַּאֲרִיךְ יַעַד - target date

For example:


הַיּוֹם זֶה הַמּוֹעֵד הָאַחֲרוֹן לְהֵרָשֵׁם לְקוּרְס שֶׁלָּנוּ הַמַּתְחִיל בְּיָנוּאָר, וּלְקַבֵּל הֲנָחָה שֶׁל מָאתַיִם שְׁקָלִים.
Today is the deadline to register for a course of ours starting in January and receive a 200-shekel discount.
