What is the nature of birchas hanehenin? Is it a form of thanks or is asking permission to eat the food? How does the relate to tasting food? Why are certain individuals exempt from reciting it? Need one understand what he is saying when using a language other than Hebrew? Is one who does not know how to make a bracha allowed to eat?
