BTW:  "Me Tarzan, you Jane.  Ugh!"  No, I don't think Hebrew is an
artificial language.  If it were then other Semitic languages would need
to be as well.

DHS: Of course!  All the Semitic languages are from the same ancestoral language: proto-Hebrew. This language was still the language of Noah and his sons (Gen. 11:1). Read Gen chapter 10 and 11. The non-Semitic languages were introduced as mixed-up confusing hodge-podges in Gen 11:7-8. Proto-Hebrew was preserved in the righteous line but as time progressed and the different Semite groups strayed from righteousness their tongues drifted from Hebrew proper. Nevertheless, all Semitic languages are direct descendants of Proto-Hebrew!
