Yes, of course. Though the usual orthography in Biblical and Modern
Hebrew is plene spelling (with the vowel-indicating mater lectionis "y"),
it can also be spelled defectively, without it - a common orthography in
Old Hebrew. My only point was the readability for modern Hebrew readers
of the Phoenician forms.
