Re: what is up with this b-hebrew mailing list archive?

When b-hebrew was an email discussion list, the mailman software automatically archived the postings. Several years ago b-hebrew moved to this web-based forum.

Re: Raphe and dagesh in the same letter

Hi, Sébastian! Good question! Ah, the Ten Commandments. The Hebrew orthography gets strange, with varying verse divisions and different accentuations. The manuscript has two competing sets of accents! Henry Churchyard on B-Hebrew way back in 2000 said: The basic principle behind the double accentuat...

Re: Psalm 40:8

Karl, Ugaritic texts (c. 2500 BC) have a word divisor mark, indicated by a period in transliterations. The idea of a verse is unknown to the ancients.
