Overview

The choice of vocabulary and grammar, in this book, is essentially an introduction to the prose, not the poetical language. Generous use of transliteration is meant to serve three purposes: it enables the reader to perceive Hebrew as a language and not an exercise in decipherment, it removes the obstacles to mastering innumerable pages of abstract phonological and orthographic details, and facilitate the memorization of the paradigms.

    Difficult but worth it

    I used this text as preperation for doing a Ph.D. in Old Testament, and I highly recommend it. If you are studying on your own, then get the answer key written by H.G. M. Williamson (Regius Professor of Hebrew at Oxford University). You will need this. Lambdin's textbook is also the most extensive first year Hebrew textbook on the market. That means that it is virtually impossible to finish this book in one year, at least while you are taking a full load of courses. Still, after working through this book you will be able to read most Hebrew prose passages with only the aid of a lexicon, and it is worth the effort.
