[b-hebrew] Five Rules for root-identification

The assumption that the different NIYQUD markings were designed for  
different vowel articulations is, in my opinion, but a wild guess.  
The Wikipedia article on the qamatz, for instance, is in my opinion  
but pure science fiction. The claim that the XATAPIYM need to be read  
B-XATAP, "snatchingly", is, in my opinion, a terminological joke.

There are people in Israel strongly calling now for the removal from  
the school curriculum of this meshugas that goes by the name of  
Hebrew grammar.
