Proverbs in E-Prime with Interlinear Hebrew in I.P.A.

NASB Copyright 1995 by The Lockman Foundation

E-Prime consists of a paraphrase in which we have endeavored to replace all “to be” verbs (is,
are, were, was, etc.) with concrete active verbs, eliminating the “is of identity” (instead of “John
is a teacher” we use “John teaches”), the “is of predication” (instead of “The apple is sweet” we
use “The apple tastes sweet”), as well as the passive voice and phantom subjects (instead of
“Blessed is the man” we use “God blesses the man”). By performing these linguistic procedures,
we have hoped to create a crisp, direct, and sparkling document.

Pronunciation Guide and Flashpoints for English Speakers

The International Phonetic Alphabet was launched in 1888 in England by Henry Sweet and
Elmer Wiggins, founders of the International Phonetic Association. The International Phonetic
Alphabet is an alphabetic system of notation based primarily on the Latin alphabet with
borrowings if the Latin alphabet does not contain the sound. The beauty of the IPA is that it is
100% phonetic, while the English alphabet (though derived from the Latin alphabet) is only 60%
phonetic, making pronunciation chancy. The best transliteration schemes are also hit and miss.
Using the pronunciation, one symbol represents one sound. The consonants are the most stable
elements of the language, but the violent vowels and the diabolical diphthongs will cause trouble
continually. Consequently, here are the potential flashpoints that may up-end English speakers as
they try to negotiate the pronunciation of the Interlinear Greek and Hebrew texts.
