This is designed as an especially user-friendly volume. Thus it employs largely traditional nomenclature to describe grammatical phenomena. It also deals with the relatively simple noun before taking up the verbal system. Numerous examples and exercises are also provided, all culled from the Hebrew Bible itself, and the lesson vocabularies feature words which occur over 170 times in the Masoretic text. This book is designed to induct the student into the use of a printed Hebrew Bible, a Biblical Hebrew lexicon, and an advanced grammar, as well as a concise overview of how Hebrew fits within the Semitic languages. Verbal paradigms and a subject index are also included.

This book is a companion to English Grammar to Ace New Testament Greek by Samuel Lamerson.
Author: Miles V. Van Pelt
Publisher: Zondervan Academic
Enables students of biblical Hebrew to grasp the basic concepts of English grammar so that they can transfer those concepts to Hebrew. One of the biggest hurdles students encounter while learning biblical languages is that they've forgotten the English grammar and terminology they were taught a long time ago (if they were taught it at all). Concepts like verb tense and voice, relative pronouns, antecedents, and adjectival substantives, may sound like familiar terms but seem foreign when it's time to put them into practice. English Grammar to Ace Biblical Hebrew reacquaints students and ministry leaders alike with the necessary English grammar in this concise and easy-to-read format, which includes: Chapter-end exercises. Tips for studying Hebrew. A glossary of terms. A list of additional Hebrew resources for further learning. Exhaustive in scope, this is also a great resource to grab for specific reference points so you can spend time focusing on learning Hebrew and applying your learning to exegesis and biblical study. This book is a companion to English Grammar to Ace New Testament Greek by Samuel Lamerson.

The first course provides students with a basic grasp of the nature and structure of the language, enables them to use the Hebrew lexicon and concordance in considering translations, offers a basic vocabulary of words significant for biblical thought and theology, illuminates the problems of the Hebrew text and its transmission, and explains the use of scholarly commentaries. The second course presents a full summary of Hebrew grammar and extensive notes on Hebrew syntax, taking as an example the Elijah story of 1 Kings 17-19. A Hebrew-English glossary of all words discussed in both courses is also included. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
This new and fully revised edition of the A Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar serves as a user-friendly and up-to-date source of information on the morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics of Biblical Hebrew verbs, nouns and other word classes (prepositions, conjunctions, adverbs, modal words, negatives, focus particles, discourse markers, interrogatives and interjections). It also contains one of the most elaborate treatments of Biblical Hebrew word order yet published in a grammar. Compiled by authors with extensive experience in the teaching of Hebrew, the text is rendered both easily accessible and a fascinating examination of the language, building upon the initial publication by incorporating up-to-date developments in the study of the Hebrew Bible. This grammar will be of service both to students who have completed an introductory or intermediate course in Biblical Hebrew, and also to more advanced scholars seeking to take advantage of traditional and recent descriptions of the language that go beyond the basic morphology of Biblical Hebrew.
This is a Hebrew grammar with a difference, being the first truly discourse-based grammar.
Author: Frederic Clarke Putnam
Publisher: Sheffield Phoenix Press Limited
Category: Foreign Language Study
This is a Hebrew grammar with a difference, being the first truly discourse-based grammar. Its goal is for students to understand Biblical Hebrew as a language, seeing its forms and conjugations as a coherent linguistic system, appreciating why and how the text means what it says-rather than learning Hebrew as a set of random rules and apparently arbitrary meanings. Thirty-one lessons equip learners for reading the biblical text in Hebrew. They include sections on biblical narrative, poetry, and the Masora-as well as of the text of the Hebrew Bible, lexica, and concordances. The examples and exercises are all taken directly from the biblical text, so that students can check their work against any relatively literal version of the Bible. The vocabulary lists include all of the words that occur fifty times or more in the Hebrew Bible. Special also to this Grammar are the 'enrichments': brief sections at the end of each chapter encouraging students to apply their grammatical knowledge to specific questions, issues, or passages in the biblical text. Appendices include a Vocabulary of all Hebrew words and proper names that occur fifty times or more, and a Glossary and index of technical terms-as well as complete nominal, pronominal, and verbal paradigms, and an annotated bibliography. The learner-friendly design of this Grammar has been endorsed by faculty and by students who have used pre-publication versions to teach themselves Biblical Hebrew, both individually, in classes, and in informal groups.

Author: Francis I. Andersen
Publisher: Penn State Press
In Biblical Hebrew Grammar Visualized, Andersen and Forbes approach the grammar of Biblical Hebrew from the perspective of corpus linguistics. Their pictorial representations of the clauses making up the biblical texts show the grammatical functions (subject, object, and so on) and semantic roles (surrogate, time interval, and so on) of clausal constituents, as well as the grammatical relations that bind the constituents into coherent structures. The book carefully introduces the Andersen-Forbes approach to text preparation and characterization. It describes and tallies the kinds of phrases and clauses encountered across all of Biblical Hebrew. It classifies and gives examples of the major constituents that form clauses, focusing especially on the grammatical functions and semantic roles. The book presents the structures of the constituents and uses their patterns of incidence both to examine constituent order (“word order”) and to characterize the relations among verb corpora. It expounds in detail the characteristics of quasiverbals, verbless clauses, discontinuous and double-duty clausal constituents, and supra-clausal structures. The book is intended for students of Biblical Hebrew at all levels. Beginning students will readily grasp the basic grammatical structures making up the clauses, because these are few and fairly simple. Intermediate and advanced students will profit from the detailed descriptions and comparative analyses of all of the structures making up the biblical texts. Scholars will find fresh ways of addressing open problems, while gaining glimpses of new research approaches and topics along the way.
