> Yes, Vadim, unless they are Israeli scholars. Biblical study does not
require any knowledge of modern Hebrew. I don't believe Gesenius knew it,
nor for that matter Rashi or Ibn Ezra, or the translators of the LXX , nor
the commentators of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

That's no argument. Rashi and Ibn Ezra were able to read the Hebrew of their
day, which was far more "talmudic" than Modern Hebrew is, and were able to
respond to contemporary scholarship.


>   Why someone would post an article here in Modern Heb., and one that has
absolutely nothing to do with biblical Heb., (it deals with suggested reform
of modern vowelling)  -- is a mystery.

That's a different issue.
