Everyone in the field always struggles with the limitations of Roman alphabet while transcribing Hebrew, the more so on an internet list where one is very restricted in the way of formatting (you can't put diacritics, italics, and lower- or uppercase letters). A trifle generosity shall be extended to all those here who try to present philological evidence in a discussion despite these limitations ; errors shall be pointed out, but where does it error ceases and quibbles of articulation begin ? On another matter, NPL, your insistence on referring us back to your 1985 revision of your dissertation may be taken as pushing rather far the Selbstzitat and (seemingly) die gewöhnlich aufgeführten Formen der Herrschaft.

In only you started on a Hebrew course! That we would not have all these faulty transcriptions. ulalfeyhem : several problems, the worst that you do not recognize the use of mater lectionis in -fe(y), the -y- is a mater lectionis and therefore not to be transcribed as y. The idea about Greek/Hebrew here is simply nonsense. You don't substitute what is perfectly understandable with what is not.
I think that you should leave the Books of Samuel for a while and look through the OT for the use of these family terms. You will probably be surprised -- if you because of lack of formal training can see it -- when you see how these terms are used and the competition between certain terms. All explained in Early Israel.

I'm just an interested observer. Can you give me some names of books to read, etc, to get more up to speed? And, especially, some assistance on teach yourself (since I'll never speak, just read) languages. Thanks!
Where, if much of my knowledge on these subjects comes from BAR, BR (magazines) and books such as "Who Wrote the Bible?" by Friedman, "The Bible as History" By Keller & several courses from the Learning Company (www.teach12.com) with such lecturers as Bart D. Ehrman and Amy-Jill Levine. And a few Bible study classes at church.
