On what grounds did you make this statement?
Further you stated:
> in hebrew i will mention $ULXAN (table), KOBA (hat), TEBA (arc), E$ (fire), NKD (grandson), NYN (great grandson), ZRT (pinky), BHN (toe), R($ (head), YD (hand), )BN (stone)
etc. only by cross-reference with other dialects can this be validated.<
Here you lost me completely: some of your examples are common Semitic, e.g. The words for head, and hand. Further, did you ever ask yourself why E$ (Fire), is feminine in Hebrew? Look it up in Akkadian where it is Ishatu - the f. marker 'T' is very much there.
Nothing to add about the linguisticallly shaky ladder. Shaky only linguistically, we saw how well it served Jacob.
