Reading Between the Letters

Contributed by guest blogger Ken Ristau

One of the challenges that many junior (and for that senior) scholars may have in reading Hebrew is the non-MT texts that do not have vowels, like the DSS modules in many popular Bible Software programs or other manuscripts and inscriptions. This is a challenging affair. Still, it is apparently possible because Israelis read modern Hebrew this way all the time. I have just never quite understood how it's possible--until now. My brother-in-law recently posted this blog entry about a Cambridge study on his otherwise non-academic blog. If you are like me, this should give you some hope that it is possible!
