Great job Melissa! I hope you can download a copy for future listening pleasure! I will say that Eliezer Ben Yehuda’s dedication crossed the border to obsession more than once. I can understand his concern that his child would lapse into the regional tongue, should he be exposed to it in excess, but I highly doubt the child would start chirping or being to whinny. Oh, and I think it speaks volumes that the first word you felt missing from modern Hebrew was ice cream! You can sleep easy at night knowing that glaring omission was rectified years ago!
