Fundamental Concepts of the Classical Hebrew Verb

Size: Library (between A5 and A4)
Pages: 62 (58)
Description: A revolutionary approach to Classical Hebrew grammar based mainly on bits and pieces from different grammar books taken as fundamental. The system is found to be far more in tune with the text. Examples are the denial of the binyan as a concept, the use of aspects instead of tenses, and the importance of the optative which is generally ignored, or wrongly sub-divided into items with difficult names.
Language: English, with Hebrew examples. (Hebrew version available from my Hebrew site).
