Re: The language question

Dear judith,
I would like to offer a small refinement to your statement that qop may be 
transliterated by chi.  A quick check of proper names shows that whereas 
qop with a vowel is transliterated kappa (Ribqah=Rebekkas), when the qop 
is with a sheva LXX transliterates it with chi as you suggest is the case 
in shebaqtani (cf names such as qeterah with mobile shewa and yoqtan or 
yoqte'al shewa nah.)
