Numbers 2

Numbers 2 couldn't be much further behind, even though the repetition is limited. It is a bit like translating a spread sheet or a grocery list. I am glad to say that 95% of the names and numbers were automated this time. It might be instructive to compare where they weren't but it may be as simple as a spelling difference. One of the more common ones is the addition or omission of a vav as an aide to pronunciation. Anyone need more help with pronouncing these names?

The last verse for the second time makes me speak like the tennis commentator who gets words out so fast, and adds the name of the player after the verb describing his or her play. Here as in chapter 1, the atnach and its caesura in the music, forces the unusual word order in any tongue that will respect it.
