This ebook is great for the coed of Biblical Hebrew. every so often, many starting scholars don't absolutely study the foundations of syntax within the first couple of semesters of Biblical Hebrew, and it's not until eventually the scholar starts to learn in top point periods that the basics of syntax are really worthy. This publication meets the necessity for a concise advisor for syntax, explaining in basic methods how issues corresponding to the waw verbal sequences and the various makes use of of prepositional prefixes paintings in sentences. the reasons are extremely simple, and a pupil who has played appropriately in a single or semesters of Hebrew should have no difficulty discerning the phrases and lingo of Hebrew grammar and syntax. The e-book is essentially a hugely abridged model of Waltke and O'Connor's Biblical Hebrew Syntax, a thick and crucial quantity that scholars probably want to graduate to upon gaining knowledge of Arnold and Choi's smaller volume.
I have used this booklet particularly widely 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 realizing of Hebrew syntax.
