It is respectfully suggested that anyone who is not able to spot
the errors on this page...
...in the transliteration (and translation) of the inscription within
(let's be gracious here) ten or fifteen seconds, without the aid of
an alphabet chart, is not a member of the script's user community.
Although, in fairness, spotting the error in the translation may
derive from an ability to spot the error in the transliteration. The
translation error is worse than the transliteration error, but
appears to be related. So, a member of the script's user community
should at least be able to spot the transliteration error immediately,
and the translation error is irrelevant for the purposes of this test.
(Anyone have Gibson 1971 handy to confirm that the error is on
the web page only and wasn't simply carried over from the source?)
(An aside, shortening the script's name in a related thread to "PH"
was masterful. It took me a few days to even realize that some
of us are probably parsing "PH" as Palaeo-Hebrew, which should be
indicative of my own frame of mind on this issue. (smile))
