a o wrote:"Having perused paininthehebrew.com, i find it very unlikely that Jedi is a transcription of Yadai."Well, I could not find any site named paininthehebrew.com on the net but luckily for me, having been born in Israel I speak Hebrew quite well. I know very little of transcription ruses and whats not but I did notice a tendency to convert the Hebrew "Yud" (or "Yod") into a the English "J". Thus the name "Yehuda" becomes "Judas" for instance, and Yehudi becomes a "Jew". Hence - transforming a "Yadai" into a "Jedi" does not seem to be such a far fetched idea.
