    about Arabic). Arabic has the same sound system as Cana‛anite, reflected in the 28-sign alphabets of both. Ugaritic also has the same sounds, except that the 30-sign alphabet has three signs for the aleph: a, u, e. Ugaritic as a language is demonstrably closer not to Hebrew—as has been assumed and continues to be promulgated—but to Arabic. Popular language in Arabic today echoes Ugaritic and other ancient concepts and allusions.There is no“Hebrew”before“square Hebrew”which is itself nothing but square Aramaic. To make their assumptions more convincing, Zionist and some Western scholars try to keep the Hebrew language closely affiliated with other ancient languages in the region, such as Aramaic,“Phoenician,” and Cana‛anite, while distancing it from Arabic. However, the contrary is closer to the truth.It is one of the irritating and inaccurate conventions of scholarship, both Western and Israeli, to transcribe inscriptions in South Arabian (which, like modern Arabic, has 28 signs), Cana‛anite/Phoenician, and Aramaic, using the 22-letter “square Hebrew” (square Aramaic). The World’s Writing Systems tells us: “The wedge script records an inventory of sounds that is closer to that found in Classical Arabic (ca. 28 sounds) than to that found in Biblical Hebrew (ca. 22 sounds)”. What then is the purpose of giving an incomplete chart when a full and accurate chart is possible by using either Arabic or the international phonetic transcription system?
