This is a red herring fallacy. Is this what I should expect from you?

You still haven’t answered my question.

I don’t how many times on this list I have stated that much of the change
would have happened in the first few generations after Hebrew ceased to be
a natively spoken language. In other words, the biggest changes in Hebrew
would have happened by the DSS period. As a result, bringing up the
Masoretes in this context is irrelevant.
