Some confusing Hebrew words – noodles, umbrellas & mushrooms

You’re at the shuk, looking for mushrooms but can’t find any.  You ask the vendor for ‘Itriyot’. He smiles and immediately understands that you are an olah hadasha. You’ve just asked him for noodles instead of mushrooms. Ooops!

He says:

Hebrew: “Mammi, ut rotzah pitriyot?”

English: “Sweetie, do you want mushrooms?”

Let’s face it, Hebrew is confusing and it is almost impossible to avoid making mistakes, but take up the challenge and learn these three new words that are often confused.
