Re: Is the WLC based on the BHS, or based on the LC?

So, how come there is a dagesh in the M of עֲרוּמִּים of Gen. 2:25, even though the word is written in full with a shuruk? It is, I think, because the shuruk was added to the biblical text later, after (after!) the placing of the dagesh. Indeed, the עֲרֻמָּה of Hosea 2:5 is written with a qubutz, an...

I see a similar phenomenon in the name מִיכַל (Sam2 14:49), written also here with a dageshless כ, bringing the reading מִיחַל.

Re: Is the WLC based on the BHS, or based on the LC?

The marking I refer to is the ubiquitous dot inside the Hebrew letter, known today as a dagesh. Here is what I think about it: 1. The inner dot, the dagesh, was entered into the biblical text about a thousand years before the invention of the dotting, the NIYQUD. In my opinion the introduction of th...

What is actually אָרוֹךְ AROK and full of רוֹךְ ROK? A שְרוֹךְ SROK is אָרוֹךְ AROK and full of רוֹךְ ROK.

Looking at ערך we realize that only that which is soft, pliable and particulate, that which is רך, can be arranged in a מַעֲרָךְ = מה-ערך עָרוּךְ = ער-הוּא-ך.

The dagesh is in any event a redundancy. The dot in the first letter of תרצח is, methinks, only a vestige of an old marking for the first letter of the word.
