One of my favorite shows was the one on regional speech specifically shiboleths. My purpose in writing is to see if there is interest in the biblical languages. I would love to hear a show about koinea (sp?)Gk- it seems amazing how words are constucted and deconstructed in that language especially in the Bible to effectively and uniquely communicate a powerful point. Then there's Hebrew - it's amazing language as well. From my brief understanding looking at some psalms written by David the language is extremely effective in communicating David's deepest emotions. I'm certain Song of Solomon would be interesting show material, although I'm not sure PG13. The Torah- enough said. One of the reasons I bring it up because the Shepherds are sons of a preacher, no?
