This volume has two objectives: "first, to provide students of early Rabbinic literature with a fairly complete grammar of the dialect of that literature; and secondly, to demonstrate the organic connexion of this Mishnaic dialect with Biblical Hebrew, and its relative independence of contemporary Aramaic, at least in the field of grammar. A good deal of material belonging to comparative grammar has, therefore, been introduced, and constant reference is made to the standard authority in the English language on the grammar of Biblical Hebrew, viz. Dr. Cowley's edition of Gesenius-Kautsch's Hebrew Grammar."from the Preface
