 for tanak
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Tanak \Tanak\, Tanakh \Tanakh\, n. [From the initial (Hebrew)
     letters of Torah, Nevi'im, and Kethubim.]
     a term used among Jews for the Hebrew Bible; the Old
     Testament. [Also spelled Tanach.]
  
     Note: Although Christians use the term "Old Testament", this
           term implies the superseding force of the "New
           Testament", not recognized as revelation by the Jewish
           faith.
           [PJC]
  
                 The Hebrew Bible is divided into three parts: (1)
                 The Torah, "Law," or Pentateuch. (2) The
                 Prophets . . . (3) The Kethubim, or the
                 "Writings," generally termed Hagiographa. --C.
