"Shewa Fight" Revisited

Today in August Hebrew we learned the wonderful "rule of shewa"! Of course this gave us the occasion to view the computer animation, "Shewa Fight." The URL had changed a bit from when I first posted this link, so I've corrected the web-address and it should be easily accessible to all. Enjoy!

Chris had a straightforward objective: "Create a simple animation illustrating a shewa fight. When two shewas are found at the beginning of a word (Hebrew is read right to left), the first shewa becomes a hirriq." His achievement is brilliant (click here to view).
