    Probably as much as there is between Ancient and Modern Greek. Ancient Hebrew is used in the Bible. Modern Hebrew is the official language of the State of Israel.

    Firaxis zigzags in this respect. Alexander the Great speaks Ancient Greek, but Wu Zetian speaks Modern Mandarin Chinese where she would be speaking Classical Chinese.

    I could do a Somali voice for a 3D Somalia leaderscreen, except I'm only fifteen.

    I'd love to try my hand at Lester B. Pearson when or if the time comes.

    The differences are.... in the rules of the language.
    Example: in modern Hebrew you say one hundred and forty, in ancient Hebrew you say one forty and hundred.
    In modern Hebrew you say gun, in ancient you say gun tool.

    Well, I don't think the ancient Hebrews had firearms. Just a theory.

    The History Channel actually showing history (or more specifically Hitler WW2) is something unheard of for me, is there any good TV channels that show history any more?

    I stopped watching TV when all of my favourite channels drifted from their original programming, early 00's were really the best years for educational TV IMO, the internet really replaced anything and everything that attracted me to watch TV.

    Also only six more hours to the grand release, right? if only I knew what caused my numerous crashes while playing Civ with all of my sweet, sweet mods. :(
