    The first 2 occurrences of #3 ("et") are not "with" but rather an (untranslatable) direct object marker. Also, you do so good in pronouncing things, why not say Shva the way it was intended?

      Great point with את, thank you for pointing this out Gabriel! I must have skipped over it as I was trying to make the video shorter (This was my second take for the day. It was a long day of recording!). Thank you for your patience. As for schwa, it's funny how my pronunciation is so inconsistent with this term. It has come into English as a common linguistic term, and I learned it in elementary school as an English term. That's why my pronunciation often reverts back to the English term when I'm speaking in English. I also hope that my students have some linguistic background, and they might recognize the term "schwa." BUT, as you probably know, this is also closer to the way it was pronounced during the time of the Bible! The Modern Hebrew pronunciation now pronounces the "waw" as a "v" because of German influence, whereas the authors of the Bible probably had the "w" pronunciation that is retained in Modern Standard Arabic (probably also the pronunciation in Akkadian and other ancient Semitic languages). So I don't mind using "schwa" as the linguistic term when I'm explaining it in English, and retain its more ancient pronunciation. But you're right to point out that it's inconsistent of me!

    Side note.. if you have an example of "royal we" or plural being used by other Semitic (or even nonsemitic) ancient people, id love to see it. I think this is a fabrication, but i could be wrong

    • @Dr_Armstrong
      @Dr_Armstrong  2 місяці тому +1

      Oh thanks for raising this question. The ones I've been taught are קדשים, "Holy ones," for God in places like Hos 12:1, עליונין "Most high ones" in Dn 7:18 (Aramaic). There are a few others like this. Each time, it's a plural referring to God, but it takes singular verbs and adjectives. Are you inclined to think that it's a remnant of polytheism, or that it's an early sign of trinitarianism?

      There are a few vocab books that will have some info. I've never used them, but they're all probably helpful. There's one by Larry Mitchel, one by George Landes, and one by Miles Van Pelt.
