Server crash and recovery

Friends, On July 19, 2016, the server supporting our forum had a catastrophic crash. In the time since, we found a new hosting service (ibiblio.org) and created a new domain.

Re: Purpose of the circumflex in hebrew transliteration.

Thanks, Jonathan, for the link. Okay, I stand corrected: the circumflexes are used to indicate varying vowel qualities. The link is to the Society of Biblical Literature standards for transliterations. Those values are reconstructions; you are right about that, Karl. It does reflect the scholarly co...
