dear friends, FYI,

the JSS paper on aramaic and phrasal pause is in press for 2004/2. i have 
added the abstract i submitted to my papers directory.

for those who want to take seriously the masoretic tradition, this is much 
needed amunition. but i think the distinctions i suggest may go a long way 
to explaining complex phenomena such as nesiga (retraction). and notice 
that i'm suggesting evidence for an expanded inventory of underlying 
vowels, with implications for semitics generally.

cheers,
vince
