Jim:

I’m still waiting for primary source data.

Ugarit doesn’t count. 1) It is outside of Canaan 2) Dating, it could have
dated from as late as a thousand years after the patriarchs.

Where do you get your two basic meanings for N(R? Show Bible passages. In
fact, some of the passages you mention argue against your theory.

So Benjamin was only 15 when he already had at least seven sons, not
counting daughters? That’s pushing it, even for regular years. Genesis
46:21.

I am still waiting for primary source data.
