Etymology[edit]

From English exhaust.

אֶגְזוֹז (egzózm (plural indefinite אֶגְזוֹזִים‎, singular construct אֶגְזוֹז־, plural construct אֶגְזוֹזֵי־‎)

  1. exhaust pipe

Usage notes[edit]

This word is generally not recognized as a loanword by speakers of Modern Hebrew, and therefore its stress follows the pattern of regular nouns. Thus its plural is typically pronounced egzozím, not *egzózim; contrast the plural of גֶּן(gen, gene), which (being perceived as a foreign word) is pronounced génim instead of *gením.
