new site: Balashon - Hebrew Language Detective

Hi everyone,

I've started a new site where I'll be regularly writing short pieces about Hebrew words and phrases. I'll be dealing with both modern and classic Hebrew, slang, new terms, and the influences of other languages. I'll be particularly focusing on the origins of the words and phrases and how they passed from one language to another.

You can visit the site here:

I'm really interested in your feedback, criticism and comments, and also questions or ideas for new entries.

Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you on the site.
