comment The Gra finished the Torah?
IMHO, this question sounds a bit silly. It's one thing to say that the Gra studied every major text that he was taught to believe was part of "the masorah", but it's another to suppose that he thought that he had thus "finished", in a sense, with Torah altogether - that Torah is a closed, bound system that one could actually do a siyum on, rather than something of infinite breadth and scope.

comment Pronunciation of אַשְׁרֵי
@DoubleAA - I haven't listened to them, but my guess is that it might have something to do with the teamim: perhaps by trying to stress both the first syllable and the third syllable of אשרי in Tehillim 2:12, the one reading has inadvertently given it a sheva na?

comment Other Major Jewish Books Whose Authorship is in Dispute beside the Zohar
"The only major Jewish work whose authorship is in dispute"?? Sounds like a bold claim. In dispute by whom? In my experience, every single major Jewish work with scarcely an exception has its authorship in dispute, from the biblical literature through to the commentaries of individual rishonim. Maybe they mean that the authorship of the Zohar is disputed in yeshivish circles?? Because in academic circles, that's par for the course.

comment What is the longest word in Tanach?
I suppose that the shortest word is the one that Cain said to his brother, Abel, in Genesis 4:8.
