שלום!

Is there an audible difference between the pronunciation of הגיע (he arrived) and הגיעה (she arrived)?

Thank you!

    If you don't pronounce the ע then there is no difference. If you pronounce the ע, then the position of the ע is different: higía‘ (m) vs higí‘a (f).

    Thanks! I guess it's just like מצאה (she found), which is pronounced identically to מצא (he found) by most speakers.
