Alpha and Bet
In Response To: Re: Greek Connection ()

Hi Bruce,

Well, as I wrote in that earlier thread, Im sure theres a lot more to the strange mirroring of the Greek and Hebrew alphabets than just the similarity of letter names, which, of course, as you point out, may be due to a common mother alphabet.

Ever thought about the English word ALPHABET? Why is it not 'alphabeta' in plain Greek? Strangely it combines the two alphabets since alpha is Greek and bet is Hebrew. In a way, the English word seems to confirm the mysterious mirroring of the two alphabets that I was talking about.

Best regards, Helge
