I now have the Hebrew audio module, yay!  Im looking forward to learning to listen and speak what I am reading. Apart from the really annoying echo it seems great so far. 

 

The very first verse I randomly pulled up to test it, Ezekiel 3:1 appears to have odd pronunciation. I want to work out if this is odd due to the rules of pronunciation being different to what I have taught, or if it is a mistake. In Ezekiel 3:1

 

  • אֲשֶׁר is pronounced with an L sound at the end instead of an R, 
  • in contrast, דַּבֵּ֖ר is pronounced with an R sound at the end as I would have expected.

Can someone help me understand this? Thanks!

  4. Improved greek text search—i.e. allow searching of all greek text the same way you would search LXX+NT, i.e. LXX+NT+ApocFathers+etc...
  5. Phrase (sympathetic) highlighting.

I hear an R at the end of both words. I think you just need to get used to the voice,

i know R is pronounced stronger in the US. To an Australian ear it's a perfect r. So it's not clear to me now if the pronunciation is correct from a Hebrew perspective.

That was me typing on the train this morning. Now that I am back on my computer, just to be clear. It really does sound like an R to me. This makes me wonder if it is a mistake, or there is a concept of a 'modern Hebrew accent' which complicates how we read things out loud.

 

Should I hear this lack of r/l distinction as an americanism, or a hebrewism, or just a mistake?
