Re: The letter vav

Karl, I was thinking that you wanted cases where את means "with" and not where it is the direct object marker. If the DSS spells one different than the other, that would help to determine whether the את should mean "with" or be the direct object marker. I did a search for את (inc...

Re: The letter vav

Thanks Ste. That is interesting about כול . I learned in Hebrew school that whenever you have the vav prefix on a word beginning with bet, pey or mem or vav, the vav prefix is pronounced as oo because otherwise it would be hard to pronounce. But I was surprised to find that in Israeli street Hebrew,...

Re: The letter vav

Sometimes the vav prefix meaning "and" is pronounced "oo" as in Deu 6:5 ‎ ‎ וּבְכָל־נַפְשְׁךָ֖ וּבְכָל־מְאֹדֶֽךָ.
Wouldn't it be a vowel in that case?

Re: The word מו

mo does not show up in a Bibleworks search. Nor is it found in HALOT.
bmo has 10 hits.
HALOT says that bmo is composed of the prefix ב + indeterminate מָה

Re: Does this word exist?

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oy_vey
Some say it came from German. Chabad says Vey is the Aramaic equivalent of the Biblical Hebrew Oy, as Ste suggested.
Maybe the German language got it from the Aramaic and Hebrew.

Re: Jeremiah 50:5

Ron, The BibleWorks command to search for all imperative verbs followed immediately by a waw consecutive perfect is: '*@v?q* ו *@v?v* You should get 38 verses with 38 hits. You will not be able to copy and paste the above into BW, but you'll need to type it in yourself. BW will prompt you for the co...

Re: Syntax of Genesis 3:5

The traditional 19th explanation has been that this is a consecutive perfect, in parallel with the consecutive imperfect. The difference is that the consecutive imperfect has a unique morphological form, [i]wayyiqtol[/], while the consecutive perfect is indistinguishable from a regular perfect. Fro...
