This Middle Eastern fruit is reputed to have 613 seeds — one for each command of the Torah. The English name reflects this in that it means, literally, “apple of many seeds.”
Notice that both vowels in this word are seghols. This class of word is called a segholate noun, and the stress (accent) will always be on the first seghol, never the second. One of the few “always” statements in Hebrew grammar and syntax. Todah (thanks) to Paul Wilbur for the graphic.
