The most rare is hatishpot.
Put the family tree on Geni.
Microsoft Word is a horrible idea for that. You need desktop publishing software like Microsoft Publish.
The question is the opposite…how did the sound of the waw become the sound of the veis…
The answer is the same.
Think like this:
Old Yiddish Man: Du reddin ‘iddish?
Young American Boy: Yu
Old Yiddish Man: Vat tyme it iz?
The resh is not guttural. It’s a dental. Probably a trill or a flap, but even the American “R” is closer.
The soft Gimmel, linguistically, probably sounds like the Israeli Reish.
Kuf is probably closer to the “QU” (and if you notice, in Israel the transliteration for Kuf is Q).
There are many sources that point to the fact that Sin and Samech are the same letters, and indeed, are interchangeable.
Think “Va’eshoch in the Akeida or “Gal Sa’adutha”. Both in the chumash with Sins, but we spell with a samech.
How do you pronounce Chaucer?
leekable = ????
@Englishman, did they have computers, modern airplanes, modern medicine, electricity, etc., 200 years ago?
Yes there are certain things that have been disproved, but clearly science has advanced. Things are disproved because they scientists learn by standing on the shoulders of those before them.
In addition, certain things are observable phenomena, that can’t be disproved, because they’re a reality. For example gravity. Now a scientist 100 years ago might have explained gravity one way, a scientist today might explain it differently, but it still exists.
Another example is Natural Selection. 100 years ago, scientist might have explained this using Darwin’s theories, those theories were disproven by Einstein (sort of), and the jury is still out…but the phenomena does exist (at a macro level for sure).
What do chazal say about them?
Apparently you don’t live in Israel. Everybody here uses German stuff, because they make the best appliances.

When are you gonna learn to “right”?
Because the “Q” sound is more approximately correct of what the “Kuf” should sound like…it is not the same sound as a “Kaf”.
Likewise the “Heth” does not sound like a “Chaf”, but somewhere between a “Hey” and a “Chaf”…listen to a Sefardi or Temani Jew read hebrew.
As for the the “T”, its just been accepted in academic circles that that is what is used.
It is not anymore incorrect than using a “Samech” sound for the ?.
The real sound is similar to the “Th” in the word “three”. Imagine a german saying “Three”, and then a Spaniard saying “Three” and you’ll understand why we have our present day sounds.
And who can leave out good ole’ waw (?), of which is most likely, for numerous reasons pronounced like a W and not like V.
I think we all agree though, that its not pronounced as a palatal like the Israel resh is.
There seems to be a stirah in the first paragraph of dikduk hagrah.
He does put ? with those letters, and calls it ????? (a sibilant, because its made from air passing through the front teeth), but then goes on to say that letters from the same place or articulation can be switched, and as an example says ? and ?.
You also forgot to mention that all the BGDCP”T letters have a different pronunciation when there is a dagesh qal in them, and when their isn’t. Not just BPC and T.
That means Gimmel and Rimmel (pronounced like the israeli reish, while the reish, which is a dental, should probably be trill or tap)
and Daled and dhaled, so that we can properly extend the D in ehadhhhhhh.
Probably the most common are the “word groupings”. Here are some:
Lcha anu shira bsimcha rabba. V’am’ru chulam.
Ze keili anu–va’mru
Bal’ma d’vra kirusei. vyamlich malchusei bchayeichon….
Shochen ad, marom vqaddosh shmo (debatable)
qedusha kulam k’echad onim, vom’rim biyira.
As for nusach, unless you’re chasidic, shabbos mincha should be like weekday untill after kedusha…same for r”h mincha.
Kaddish before maaric s”e follows mode of rest of davening…on friday night, kaddish doesn’t have the same tune as the birchos k”s (I think it’s like shacharis of shabbos).
Remember the modes! Kel adon should be in minor.
Make sure tunes are appropriate and fit.
Today it was made known that the rabbi the kabbalist Nissim Shalom dreamt about his grandfather who informed him that the messiah is in the doorway, and this must be made known to all the nation of israel. He also commanded that he who is alacritous to send this out will be saved from the pangs of the messiah, and he who doesn’t will lose a lot of money. The rabbi cautioned to make it known publicly. It should be sent out to 12 people, like the number of the tribes, immediately, for this is the time of will.
Sounds like any old chain letter to me.
Feif Un: Definitely a snack in that case
I think the crux of the issue boils down to whether or not pizza is considered a snack. I don’t think anybody would consider two slices a snack.
Sometimes one. I’ve certainly eaten one slice of pizza “to get the edge off”. On the other hand, sometimes I’ve sat down, and eaten one slice of pizza, with intent that this would be a meal.
With the price of pizza going up nowadays, it’s getting harder and harder to classify it as a snack.
