Overview

Learning Biblical Hebrew Grammatical Concepts through English Grammar

"Grammatical Concepts 101 for Biblical Hebrew has long been my go-to resource for both undergraduate and graduate students who want to see how the grammar of Hebrew compares to English. Dr. Long does not err by explaining Hebrew in light of English; rather, he skillfully compares the two languages, all the while maintaining and explaining their distinct properties. His work provides a truly helpful conceptual bridge between the two different grammatical systems. All Hebrew teachers should have this volume close at hand for easy reference to students; most teachers should assign it as a supplemental textbook."
--Robert Holmstedt, University of Toronto

Praise for the first edition

"In the real world of language pedagogy, where students' knowledge of English grammar is patchy at best, this volume is a crucial counterpart to textbooks of biblical Hebrew. Lucid and accessible explanations of grammatical concepts and terms provide students with the framework they need to understand language structures. Armed with this deeper appreciation of English grammar, students will be better prepared to think about the structures of biblical Hebrew."
--Cynthia L. Miller-Naudé, University of the Free State, South Africa

"A tremendous boon to teachers of biblical Hebrew. . . . This is a remarkably valuable aid that instructors will benefit both from reading and from making available to their students."
--Frederick E. Greenspahn, Religious Studies Review

"[Long] has . . . rendered a great service to Hebrew language students and instructors everywhere."
--Michael Williams, Calvin Theological Journal

"Long has done an admirable job bringing together readable discussions of what are sometimes difficult-to-comprehend grammatical concepts. . . . I found Long's work to be an insightful and well-presented introduction to basic (and advanced) grammatical concepts."
--Tyler F. Williams, Toronto Journal of Theology

"The layout of the book is excellent. . . . First-year grammars tend not to cover many of the topics that Long addresses. His presentation is well done and concise so that students can learn to distinguish and label elements that they observe."
--Brian L. Webster, Bibliotheca Sacra

"Following the logic of the Hebrew language and connecting it with English grammar is the strength of this specialized book. This volume is an important counterpart to textbooks of biblical Hebrew for students at college level and up. The explanations are clear and accessible, the grammatical concepts and terms provide students and readers with the framework they need to understand language structures."
--Nomi Levy, Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter
