Resources for Biblical Hebrew?

Post by JLatin1 » Thu May 05, 2005 10:02 pm

I'm not a complete beginner, as I already know some Modern Hebrew and can generally get the gist of Biblical Hebrew if I know the vocab. I would like to know if there are any free online grammars such as the ones posted here for Latin. My goal is learn more from a grammar standpoint, because I haven't really ever learned Biblical Hebrew grammar.

Thanks,
-Jonathan

I found this site and started looking through some of the information. Unfortunately, my first year of college has interfered with all of my language studies. Hopefully I'll be able to get back into it during the summer.

If you have questions (not really tutorial style) you can ask people at my forum who are pretty knowledgeable about Hebrew. Otherwise I'd recommend the cheap TY Biblical Hebrew which you can get from Amazon for a good price. For a better book, but a little more expensive, there's always Lambdin's.

Well...if you knew Latin you could consult the Grammatica hebraica absolutissima digitally available at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France:

(hint, hint)

THere seem to be a bunch of us here who know some Hebrew. I don't reommend the TY book, but the classes at my school use Kelley's - which I'll be basing the tutoring I do this summer on.

If you're advanced neough, perhaps all you need is a good reference grammar and a lexicon.
