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.

comment How much is Classical Hebrew (in which the Hebrew Bible is written) is different from the modern Hebrew?
@DoubleAA both sentences looks fine to me. If you feel it is problematic, you are welcomed to edit.

comment How much is Classical Hebrew (in which the Hebrew Bible is written) is different from the modern Hebrew?
@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

comment Why can't Ploni Almoni be a real name, in Ruth?
If a person is called after a place the name is bit altered, like בבלי for someone from בבל. It doesn't sounds reasonable to call exactly same way to a man and a place. Especially when you have linguistic explanation of connection between Ploni and Unknown.

@DoubleAA I always was under an impression that yibum was his only option. If you think I'm wrong you are welcome to post it as an answer.

comment Why was Boaz obligated to make yibum to get the field
@DoubleAA If he had other options then why he hurried up Tov with his decision. He could just buy the field directly from Ruth.

Here is an article in Hebrew that discusses the same question: tshuvot.wordpress.com/2009/12/27/… The first comment there also adds some sources that might be interesting.
