      Hi,
        This is my favorite:
       
      Straight out of the Biblical Archaeologist, Vo. 58, No. 1.  Article by Tom Levy et al.
       
      New Light on King Narmer and the Protodynastic Egyptian Presence in Canaan.
       
      P. 27, first paragraph:  "The Nahal (Hebrew; Arabic = wadi) Tillah is a small secondary seasonal drainage which debauches into the larger Nahal Gerar and is located near the interface between the Irano-Turanian semi-arid and Mediterranean environmental zones of Israel's northern Negev and southern Shephelah."
       
      Best wishes,
       
      NB: It is repeated in a more scholarly article in Basor. No reader  or editor caught it. Of course it was meant to be: debouche.

      A request: Student bloopers are needed, for a book to be published by Mitch Allen and Left Coast Press. Any and all areas desired: history, archaeology, English, science, etc. Bloopers already collected from student essays, exams, and research papers include gems such as "The Israelites.. .wondered in the dessert for 40 years." Please send via email to Eric Cline at ehcline@gwu. edu. Please also include a statement giving express permission to include the bloopers in the book. Apologies in advance for cross-listing; please feel free to forward this message. Cheers and thanks, Eric
