Yitzhak:

We have gone over this before, so I don't see any real benefit in
going over it again.

I have already described what appear to be pronunciation shifts in the
post Babylonian Captivity era, but that the data is too sparse to
prove it. But you  can't disprove it either.

As for modern people who champion the Byzantine tradition of New
Testament texts as being closer to the original manuscripts, those
have included scholars who prepared and edited modern republications
of the same, one of whom was Harstad (my main computer is down right
now, so I don't have access to others listed).
