Review by Hongwei Z
Overall Rating
The value of this little tool is beyond doubt, and since this is not a serious book review, I shall not iterate the appraisal it deserves. This newly updated version has very visually-pleasing typesetting, which is really wonderful.
Upon using it though, a somewhat serious issue was found. In general, the spirantized version of the bgdkpt series is not all transliterated correctly. Initially I thought it might be a deliberate imitation of the modern Israeli pronunciation, but a brief reading revealed that ḇḏḵṯ are systematically missing the "macron-below" in transliteration. On very rare occasions, I have also found the "macron-below" for p̄ missing.
Another issue that I only noticed once is the wrong transliteration and syllabification of the word לַיְלָה. The yod with schwa (יְ) is obviously creating the diphthong ay but is wrongly transliterated as yə and even got a syllable status.
I am trying to mark out all errors and missing macrons as I read through. (Posted on 6/8/2017)
