HTML programmer. Skilled with Java scripts; over ten years' experience in Node.js. Some experience in C or C++.

(O.K., not really. If you want to know about me for real, just read through some of my answers and comments on Stack Overflow. But if this profile made just one person wince, it was totally worth it!   :-)

By the way — any code that I post here, is because I intend for others to be able to use it, and not necessarily just under the terms of CC-BY-SA 3.0. I can't say categorically that I cross-license all my code here into the public domain, because code in my answers is frequently a "derivative work" of code from the question, and of course I can't re-license OPs' work without their permission; but suffice it to say, if you take code that I post here and adapt it for use in a non-trivial program of which my code is a trivial or incidental piece, then you don't need to worry about my rights under CC-BY-SA.

comment How different is Biblical Hebrew from modern Hebrew?
Re: your conclusion: Present-Day-English-speaking readers of Shakespeare also misunderstand many things without realizing it. So that really might be the right analogy. (I wonder if there exist any studies examining how well English-speakers understand Shakespeare, and how well Hebrew-speakers understand BH? This seems like it could be quantifiable in a way that allowed for comparisons.)
comment How different is Biblical Hebrew from modern Hebrew?
Re: "MIH [...] (to my understanding) doesn't use the direct-object marker et": That's not true; in fact, MIH uses it much more than BH does. (But BH also has another preposition et, roughly synonymous with im "with", which in MIH has been almost completely superseded by the latter except in inflected forms. Maybe that's what you're thinking of?)
