Ah Perspective

So Hebrew's been a little rough--not rough like I really can't do this, but rough like not warm and fuzzy. Yesterday, I read my first little bit of Hebrew outloud before people who can rattle it off like no one's business. The verdict: I put em-PHA-sis on the wrong sy-LA-ble. (See View from the Top trailer--sorry I could only find a non-English trailer). Sigh.

However here's a link that put it's all in perspective (HT PaleoJudaica). At least I know better than to transliterate English into Hebrew when there's a perfectly reasonable (and more succinct) alternative. And at least I can tell when my computer copies my Accordance searches left to right instead of right to left (same HT).
