Thanks to the Masoretes!

I would like to thank the Masoretes of Tiberias who, in the second half of the first millennium CE in the land of Israel, created the most widespread system of Hebrew vowel markings; it is the only one still in use to a significant degree today. (http://bit.ly/cWVGeN)

The Masoretes attempted to attain consistency through established rules of articulating the words and correcting spelling and reading. The Torah scroll was written using only the consonants and no vowels or accents. Therefore, the Masoretes created a system of chanting symbols and vowel placement so future generations would understand the proper pronunciation.

The Masoretes made all spelling changes or changes to the text in the margins because they refused to alter the original text. Finally, the Masoretes provided white spaces in between words to break up the continuous text. (http://bit.ly/1886QX2)
