“Waw” is the Hebrew letter most often used as a co-ordinating conjunction. It is attached to nouns in a list. The following is a good example of its use:
35 And the Lord hath blessed my master greatly; and he is become great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold, and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses. (Genesis 24)
If written in proper English, only one conjunction would have been used, plus a series of commas:
He hath given him flocks, herds, silver, gold, menservants, maidservants, camels, and asses.
The Book of Mormon is full of these Hebrew like conjunctives. Here is just one example:
14 But behold, a hundredth part of the proceedings of this people, yea, the account of the Lamanites and of the Nephites, and their wars, and contentions, and dissensions, and their preaching, and their prophecies, and their shipping and their building of ships, and their building of temples, and of synagogues and their sanctuaries, and their righteousness, and their wickedness, and their murders, and their robbings, and their plundering, and all manner of abominations and whoredoms, cannot be contained in this work. (Helaman 3)
If written in proper English it would have looked like this:
Their wars, contentions, dissensions, preaching, prophecies, shipping, and building of ships.
What was once something to scoff at, is now regarded as evidence Joseph did not write The Book of Mormon.
