Haveil Havalim #45 is out

Over at Mirty's Place, home to an artistic and technical wiz, comes the latest issue of Haveil Havalim, the best of the Jewish blogosphere.

At the suggestion of Soccer Dad, I nominated this post about Hebrew slang, a topic I find interesting because my knowledge of modern Hebrew is sorely lacking. Language development is a neat topic altogether, the weekly Forward column by Philologos always teaches me something I never knew. Modern Hebrew has had to "grow up" in only a hundred years and this is probably why there is less resistance to change and integrating words from other languages in Israel than in, say, France.

Anyway, it is (as always) a good issue of HH!
