Back in the dorm...

Well, I'm back at YU. The part I like about coming back to school is the saying hi to my people again, but like, dude, it's school. *Sigh* I got a lot of stuff to do. I have to go over Mishpatim over the next 2 weeks--although I'm hoping I won't need so much time--I have to start learning Megillas Ester (why does everyone put that 'h' in there?!), for the next week go over 6 prakim--SIX!!--for the Mishnayos Incentive Quiz at the Preeminent Modern Orthodox School of Excellence (again, credits to R' Avraham Bronstein); at least I wrote down the mishnayos like notes on paper--got it to 4 pages writing really really really small. So yeah I got my work cut out for me (that's how it's used, right?).
DJ pick up your phone please!!!

The 't' alone transliterates into a 'tet'. The 'th' transliterates into 'taf' because at some point in history, it actually did have more of a 'th' sound. Listen to a traditional Yemenite (the time warp of Judaism) pronounce one to get an idea. There are a few cases where older, now lost pronounciations get preserved in transliteration. That's sort of how 'Aza or 'Amorah (as in Sedom and 'Amorah) are Gaza and Gemorrah in English?
