Just wondering why this was so.
Okay, it may look like hebrew, but it's not. It's obvious that the graphic designers for Star Wars used the hebrew alphabet as a base for the Sith Runes. So thinking within the Star Wars Universe, it's not hebrew.--MadMarek (Force Box) - "We speak, we learn, thats what we're for" 13:59, February 20, 2014 (UTC)
No. It is truly Hebrew. It says something about, "He whose deeds must be redeemed", or something like that. Look around, I'm sure you will find it. But for in-universe understanding you do need to wait for confirmation if it is Sith Rune or not. It could be Sith Rune, a vision into the words of our galaxy Vader read without knowing and marked his suit mistaking them for signs of power, or anything. Really, hold your gundarks before you go with the obvious, "Sith Runes!" I understand why, though. Despite the oddity of describing Hebrew letters as Sith Runes. And the Irony. I have been my own ideas about the writings of the Sith since learning of what the recent sources failed to recognize, and some of the idea has come from Hebrew writing. It is just funny that you should call them Sith Runes after that. But don't worry. I won't point out there are some flaws with the conversion of Hebrew to Sith.184.108.40.206 16:02, February 26, 2014 (UTC)
"His deeds will not be forgiven until he merits" is the phrase you're looking for. As the author for The Written Word, I can say with authority that Common Sith was indeed meant as specifically the in-universe counterpart for the Hebrew alphabet. I can also say with authority that, with hindsight, there are many flaws with that, particularly now that Secrets from the Dark Side has given us a completely different writing system for Sith (which may or may not have ties to the High Sith alphabet mentioned in The Written Word). jSarek (talk) 07:19, February 28, 2014 (UTC)
I thought you were Grossblat. I was about to find a way to argue that you had no clue the Hebrew language existed when writing the Sith dialect. Instead you are the guy who canonized further High Galactic since we can't change the name of an X-wing because that is its exact shape. Good job on that. Using Aurebesh right now in fact. When Grossblat looked at and objected to some things about the Sith language so far, he had also forgotten about the Hebrew language in his reasoning. And furthermore...I like precedence over new flaws, to give my personal opinion. Thanks a lot for the name for 'High Galactic'.220.127.116.11 15:34, March 3, 2014 (UTC)
