Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
- A phone, telephone.
- (all senses): There is some disagreement about the appropriate niqqud (diacritics) to use for the /e/ sounds. The Hebrew Academy, in its examples of loanword niqqud, uses the tzeirei: טֵלֵפוֹן, as does Reuven Sivan and Edward A. Levenston, The New Bantam-Megiddo Hebrew & English Dictionary, Bantam Books (1975), ISBN 0-553-26387-0. However, Shimon Zilberman, The Up-to-Date English-Hebrew Hebrew-English Dictionary, Zilberman (1994), uses the segol: טֶלֶפוֹן.
- ט־ל־פ־ן (T-l-p-n)
- טִלְפֵּן (tilpen)
