Author Info

I have degrees in philosophy, law, and mathematics, and lifelong amateur interests in history and linguistics.  I won a set of Encyclopedia Brittanicas in 7th grade for an essay on who the speakers of Proto-Indo-European might have been. In the 1970s I transcribed the Tanakh (original Hebrew text of the Old Testament, from the Leningrad Codex) into an ASCII file (with codes for the cantillations as well as vowel-points and consonants): all online Hebrew OTs derive from this file. In 1980 discovered an unexcavated archaeological site in Turkish Kurdistan.  At present I tutor statistics and calculus in the Detroit area.
