Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Semitic *ʾanāku. Cognate with Akkadian [Cuneiform?] [script?] (anāku, I) and Phoenician 𐤀𐤍𐤊 (ʾnk, I) / 𐤀𐤍𐤊𐤉 (ʾnky, I).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • (Modern Hebrew) IPA(key): /ʔanoˈχi/

Pronoun[edit]

אָנוֹכִי \ אָנֹכִי (anokhí) m, f

  1. I (first-person singular nominative pronoun).

Usage notes[edit]

  • In Modern Hebrew, the form אֲנִי (aní, I) is used almost exclusively, though אָנוֹכִי \ אָנֹכִי may be used for emphasis, or to imitate Biblical style.
