BARD wasn't barred, but tucked away cautiously in the "WORD" entry with דבר DaBeR (speak).
Between the music (BRD had to come from DBR) and the meaning (I was thinking "poet and minstrel) I was reluctant to give BARD a separate entry in the Edenics wordbase/digital dictionary.
But then Regina Werling and Mark Feffer came up with new research to convince me.
I love being corrected. I guess that's why I never fit into academia.
