comment How much is Classical Hebrew (in which the Hebrew Bible is written) is different from the modern Hebrew?
@SethJ if we or even commentators do not know what we learn from a specific word in Torah, it still does not means that the word is "in fact" redundant.

@Warlus the Cat, if you think this doesn't answer the question, you might want to remove "accepted" mark from this answer, in order to avoid confusion of occasional googlers

comment matzah = mezonos or hamotzi
@Menachem if you קובע סעודה (set up a meal) on a mezonos you have to wash on it. On Passover usually people eat matzah as a main part of the meal.

comment Hamster Food and Chometz
My children enjoy playing with hamsters, especially at Passover vacation when they spend more time at home. So, I prefer them to remain in my property. Anyway, thanks for the information that precisely suits my case.

@DoubleAA both sentences looks fine to me. If you feel it is problematic, you are welcomed to edit.

@DoubleAA I've said "The Classical Hebrew is more compact", not that is the most compact way to describe something. The cause is: no-redundant-words constraint, which is surely affects the way things are described. Once again, parshanut is not the main issue of an answer, just a reason for more common use of compact language forms. Doesn't that clear from the answer?

@Will Usually, out of the context you understand that the text describes something that occurred in past. So, I think this is not a problem for a common Hebrew-speaker
