On the contrary. It shows:
1. Place-of-articulation correlation between the LXX and MT consonants.
2. Voicing correlation between consonants.
3. Lack of stop/fricative/aspirant correlation.
4. Lack of vowel correlation.
In other words, except for the vowels and Beged Kefet, the LXX and MT
match pretty well.
