Once again I have learnt something interesting about a subject I knew nothing about.

This is an engaging article full of tidbits of information I had not heard or read before. The premise that the Jews were the "Palestinians" of the late 1800's, continuing up to Independence in 1948 is also brought out in my just-released mystery thriller Jerusalem 3000, THE POISONER'S AGENDA, but this article made that fact so vivid! Mr. Berdichevsky's paragraphs about the melding of liturgic, academic, and colloquial Hebrew to form the modern lingo was fascinating. A most satisfying and informative read.
