It was exhaustive, though as output from an electronic
program (Accordance).

I'm not sure that you are in a position to judge this,
or that the statement is the proper way to say 'thanks'.

Let's see-- just this month --
you sent a half-dozen emails arguing that Ps 51:10
MUST have אשר asher 'that'
if DIKKITA (DKYT) was to be read as a verb.
That claim was incorrect, of course, as was shown.

Now here in this case --with more than a half dozen
emails where you
1. claimed that a suffix -TM needed to be written according to
your "CV" Hebrew (note the phraseology
"would have to assume that here we are dealing with a
copyist error"-- but nothing was 'compelling' that, except
a mistaken 'BH', and it was certainly not presented as
a hypothetical):
"[KR] However, to maintain that reading [HMTM='you put to
death'-RB], I would have to assume that here we are dealing
with a copyist error, as the form of the word does not fit that
meaning."
and 2. often evaded the argument with false claims:
"[KR]
>>Again, in 2 Samuel 1:9, 16, while these are not hiphils, they
>> are conjugated from MWT where the second tau is the
>> normal conjugation suffix for the use and context.

...

You're welcome.

And this leads to the points that you did not address.
Have you recognized what this data says concerning
your claim about CVCVCV Hebrew?

One of the benefits of specifying what a viewpoint teaches is
that a person can check them out to see if they line up with the
data. Here, the data was 116 to 0 against the starting point.
That would lead most people to reconsider the 'theory', which
can be a lights'-on experience. Or at least 'smelling the coffee'.

So CVC syllables are BH, and LBH (Second Temple), besides
being Aramaic, Arabic, and Hebrew morphology as recorded by
the Masoretes.
