Balashon - Hebrew Language Detective

Balashon is a fascinating blog written about the etymology of Hebrew.  A great resource for learning Hebrew, or studying the Parsha.   You can also follow this author's language detective work via Twitter (don't ask me how to use Twitter... I've only read about it so far) here

"On this site I investigate Hebrew - Biblical, Talmudic, Medieval and Modern - including slang; related languages like Aramaic, Arabic, Akkadian and Yiddish; and how foreign languages like Greek, Latin and English have entered Hebrew - and how Hebrew has affected those languages as well.

I discuss the meanings of words, with a focus on etymology."
