A practical class lasting two semesters, each session lasting two hours. Its aim is for students to acquire linguistic
competence in independent reading, translation, and grammatical analysis of Hebrew texts from the Old
Testament of medium difficulty. The course follows on directly from the intensive course in Biblical Hebrew.

The first semester of studies is devoted to the system of verbs:
• Classes of weak verbs
• Multiple weak verbs
• Suffixed verbs

The second semester of studies is devoted to syntax:
• Issues relating to tenses in Hebrew
• The syntax of imperatives, infinitives, negatives, questions, and wishes
• Types of sentence in narrative and non-narrative types of text
