Sitchin is able to understand these ancient languages because he is a member of a tribal minority who even to this day continue to use Cuniform and Sumarian language on a dayly basis.
The dictionary that you refer to is most probably in the wrong.
Modern "Hebrew" is actually not Hebrew at all, since it is actually a European language called "Yiddish".
The Soviet authorities considered the use of Hebrew "reactionary" since it was associated with both Judaism and Zionism, and the teaching of Hebrew at primary and secondary schools was officially banned by the Narkompros (Commissariat of Education) as early as 1919, as part of an overall agenda aiming to secularize education (the language itself didn't cease to be studied at universities for historical and linguistic purposes). The official ordinance stated that Yiddish, being the spoken language of the Russian Jews, should be treated as their only national language, while Hebrew was to be treated as a foreign language. Hebrew books and periodicals ceased to be published and were seized from the libraries, although liturgical texts were still published until the 1930s. Despite numerous protests, a policy of suppression of the teaching of Hebrew operated from the 1930s on. Later in the 1980s in the USSR, Hebrew studies reappeared due to people struggling for permission to go to Israel (refuseniks). Several of the teachers were imprisoned, for example, Ephraim Kholmyansky, Yevgeny Korostyshevsky and others responsible for a Hebrew learning network connecting many cities of USSR.
What made the Annunaki of Sumaria so important is in that they were descended from a race of giants [nephilim] who ruled the pre-flood Earth. The flood [described in the Bible] destroyed all of them except a few. These few surviving Annunaki [nephilim] tried to re-establish their civilization. We are the out growth from their efforts to restore what the flood destroyed.

Well after reading the following Document by Johathan Gray I have found that my view on Sitchin has certainly changed.
I think Gray is as shonky as Sitchin Seeker
I followed your link and got as far as Gray raving on about the bible and how dangerous the theory of evolution is, I didnt bother reading anymore after that
-then did a search here on him and he didnt get a good rap
