Ben Yehuda is a "modern" Hebrew dictionary, and, as I noted in my
original email, I have little experience in modern, Israeli Hebrew -
maybe the orthography is different there, I just don't know. Which is why
I was limiting my remarks to classical Hebrew.
Maybe we have some Israeli lurkers out here who can help us with this?
