Baasah - בָּאֲסָהּ

Pronunciation: Ba·'a·sah

Literal translation: Bummer



The word comes from a similar word in Hebrew ‘mivayes’ meaning ‘defeated.’ Basa is a commonly used word in Hebrew meaning, “oof, what a shame” or “what a bummer.” Finally made it to the post office to pick up your overseas order and it’s closed on this particular Tuesday for no apparent reason? Basa.
