Dear All,
This probably is not strictly a question of the
Hebrew, but what type of earthenware vessel is
implied here (Lev. 11:33)?
Milgrom (1991:675) says that the prohibition would
not apply to glazed clay which does not absorb
impurities or to unfired clay which would maintain
its status as soil, and so cannot be contaminated.
I don't understand what type of vessel is left
then which must be broken.
Thanks.

Liz Fried
