This ebook is great for the coed of Biblical Hebrew. on occasion, many starting scholars don't totally examine the principles of syntax within the first couple of semesters of Biblical Hebrew, and it isn't until eventually the scholar starts off to learn in top point periods that the basics of syntax are actually useful. This e-book meets the necessity for a concise advisor for syntax, explaining in easy methods how issues similar to the waw verbal sequences and the various makes use of of prepositional prefixes paintings in sentences. the reasons are extremely simple, and a scholar who has played correctly in a single or semesters of Hebrew shouldn't have any hassle discerning the phrases and lingo of Hebrew grammar and syntax.

I have used this booklet particularly commonly in my very own exegesis periods (Dr. invoice Arnold is one my profs) and it has served me rather well. hence, i like to recommend it to any pupil of Hebrew that wishes reinforcement of their knowing of Hebrew syntax.
