... an IPA transcription for the pronunciation?

Please clarify. What words? What sort of IPA pronunciation? Something similar to your posh post?

Aleph: Welcome to the forum. Cryptic posts are fair game but when we holler "Uncle!" please elucidate.

Note the similarity of Alpha in Alpha Agora and your identifier, Aleph. I believe that is the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet. It is sometimes used as a symbol in mathematics, especially in point-set-theory. Perry is our Hebrew expert.

Yes, many words have been repeated, some quite regularly, such as Mother and Father for their respective days. The last few have all been new, as far as I can tell.

As to the IPA transcription, I personally find it far too complex for amateurs such as us.

The Agora once had a member named simply Perry, who did have knowledge of Hebrew. He's long gone, sad to say.

This Perry is too modest about his knowledge of Hebrew.
