A correction

Remember the whole cardamom fiasco? Well, a kind soul pointed out to me that in my paper on Hemingway's Hills Like White Elephants (posted in a previous entry), I mistranslated "licorice" to the Hebrew שומר (Shumar), when in fact licorice is חוטמית ביצות (chotmit bitsot) and Shumar is called 'fennel' in English.

Remember, kids, Nyarlathotep is in the details!
