Greetings fellow Tanakh aficionados:
During the Arab upheaval in Cairo's Tahrir Square, reportage always
translated 'Tahrir' as 'Liberation'.
Now Tahrir does resemble the Hebrew 'shikhrur' which also means
liberation. I suspect the two are indeed linguistically related.
Are they? Please advise. If indeed 'T' would be substituting for
'Sh', are there other examples of this particular substitution in the
Mikra? I do know there are other letters that substitute for each
