Hi i have a question about a certain slang expression in hebrew used in Israel alot.
I've heard the expression "be-priat dinak" an i wanted to know exactly what it meant and how to properly pronounce it. I know its usualy used in exasperation and that its probably derived from arabic. Also how would it be properly spelt in hebrew?

Hello, I'm new to this forum and just stumbled upon this page, but would like to answer your question.
The expression is be-chyat dinnak, or in Hebrew בחיאת דינאק, though it's rarely written...

It's not easy to explain what it means to be frank. Kind of like the English "come on". I think mostly it expresses frustration, but in all honesty, it doesn't exactly have an actual meaning per se.
