Some of us like grammar, and some of us don’t. The word verb excites some of us, while daunting others or making them drowsy.
But most of us know that a verb is a word that indicates action.
In Hebrew, this is easy to remember, since the very word for verb itself – פֹּעַל ( listen and repeat) – comes from the root meaning action – פ.ע.ל (p.a.l).
Likewise, activity is פְּעִילוּת ( listen and repeat).
פְּעִילוּת גּוּפָנִית הִיא דָּבָר חִיּוּנִי בְּיוֹתֵר לַבְּרִיאוּת.
Physical activity is something most essential to health.
Action, on the other hand, is פְּעוּלָה ( listen and repeat).
הוּא מְאֹד אוֹהֵב סִרְטֵי פְּעוּלָה.
He loves action movies.
