Ugaritic and the Psalms

I have been reading WBC Psalms 1-50. The author makes a big fuss about Ugaritic being important. I don't mean to suggest that it is not important, but when I scan through his index of reference to Ugaritic, I can't find a single instance where usage of Ugaritic helps us. Each of the examples I looke...

Syllabification of מַלְכָּה?

I wonder if someone can help me clarify how to divide this word into syllables?

מַלְכָּה

My confusion is around the sheva, i.e.

מַ | לְ | כָּה CV,CV,CVC or
מַלְ | כָּה CVC,CVC.

I guess I don't know if the sheva can count as a vowel for the purposes of syllabification?

Why does the בּ in גִּבּוֺר contain a dagesh?

Can someone please help clarify for me why the בּ in גִּבּוֺר contains a dagesh? Isn't it that dagesh lene shouldn't occur after a vowel?

That footnote clarifies why the exercise might use the word like this.

Thanks also to S_Walch for the extra details.

Transliterating "mosheh"

I haven't learnt to type hebrew yet, so heres a screenshot. I am doing Allen Ross's biblical hebrew, page 41. I found an answer key website which inserts an "o" in the transliterated version, where does this o come from, or perhaps is the answer key wrong? (Answer key page: https://biblica...

Purpose of the circumflex in hebrew transliteration.

Working my way through the Allen Ross textbook. Is it correct to say the circumflex has no value other than to facilitate transliteration back into Hebrew? i.e. It would have no value if your intention is to transition to reading/writing in Hebrew. And it also has no value in how a person reading tr...

Re: Hebrew OT Audio ePubs

This is really exciting. I wonder if there is a way to get this to work on a mac (iBooks, iPhone, iPad, etc...) Is there a trick that I am missing?

Audio for Genesis 1 and Jonah 1

Hi Guys, I've spent some time in Randal Booth's Koine Greek material but I am literally only just beginning to learn Biblical Hebrew (I am practicing reading/writing the letters today). I am not sure if there are major pronunciation questions that would influence the answer to this question, if so, ...
