לְנַצֵחַ – to win

October 3, 2011

Many of us play sports simply for our personal enjoyment. The fact is, though, regardless of the sport – it is far more fun to win than to lose. And so, knowing how to say “I won!” is somewhat important and helpful (not to mention gloating over the water cooler when your team defeats your manager’s on the national game Sunday Night Football…)

Coincidentally, this verb also means to supervise or to conduct (a band), in addition to ‘to win’.

Where there is a second verb form shown for a given tense, the one on the right is more often heard in colloquial use.
