Who is Avshalom Kor?

Dr. Avshalom Kor is an Israeli linguist and expert on Hebrew grammar and semantics.

He is known to provide upon request, the grammatical root of any given Hebrew word and/or name along with its Biblical origins and contextual references.

He is probably best known as an authority on the gender of Hebrew words and the proper usage of suffixes and plural extensions.

He has a daily show on Israel army radio and a weekly show on Israeli TV Channel 1.

He is also known as an extreme racist, calling Arabs "cannibals" on his Army Radio station. He received some condemnation in Ha'aretz and otherIsraeli media outlets, but was only mildly and indirectly reprimanded by Army Radio for this thuggish behavior, when he was told to stay on the topic of language and linguistics.

He also made a guest appearance in Episode 14 Season 3 of Srugim.
