Uri and All.

I have said it before, I will say it again.
In my opinion the Hebrew vowels U, I are the personal pronouns HU,  
HI, independent of gender. The vowel A is just a puff of air. The  
ancient Semites did not waste vowels for nothing. Thus LUQAX is L+HU 
+QAX, where HU is Elijah. This is the grammar. The rest is being  
understood contextually. Saying that LUQAX is PUAL is the same as  
saying that PUAL is LUQAX. Nothing is gained thereby.
