I've just been reading E.Y. Kutscher's analysis of the Hebrew of 1QIsaA to
get more linguistic understanding of the problem of dialects implied in the
DSS and came across a statement he made that samekh (s) for sin ($), which
is to be noted in 1QIsaA, "already appears in the Bible, and is a common
phenomenon in Rabbincal Hebrew." His footnote here was to some work which I
couldn't locate. Does anyone know of examples in the OT/HB of $ -> s?
