Item description for Learning Biblical Hebrew by Bryan M. Rocine, B. M. Rocine & Bryan M Rocine...

Overview
Several Hebraists of the last decade have called for the inclusion of discourse-level issues in introductory studies of Biblical Hebrew. In Learning Biblical Hebrew, Bryan Rocine has written a first-year teaching grammar for Biblical Hebrew prose, taking the student from basic pronunciation forward. Students who have completed introductory courses in Biblical Hebrew often voice well-founded frustrations. They know some of the parts of the language, but they cannot read biblical text with any nuanced understanding. Rocine seeks to gain, for first-year students, the greatest possible advantage for their one-year's efforts. The course is comprised of fifty lessons and eight readings, which run concurrently with lessons 15-50. Each lesson is based on an actual biblical "verse" that illustrates the topic(s) for the lesson. The goals for each lesson are stated at the outset. Almost every lesson contains review material from the previous lesson before introducing the new material. Also for review, the student is given cross-referencing to previously learned material throughout the book. Every lesson has assignments of two types: (1) speed drills in which the student practices the lesson's materials as illustrated in examples containing minimal differences and(2) translation exercises taken from actual biblical texts. The book also contains charts for all the major paradigms and a list of those charts at the front of the book. This volume teaches a vocabulary of approximately 400 words, and the student reads about 1,000 verses of actual biblical texts.

Reviews - What do customers think about Learning Biblical Hebrew?

Underestimated  Jun 25, 2004
I have a "manuscript" laserprinted version of this book which I bought from Bryan Rocine several years ago before regularly published. It has only 432 pages, and I do not know the final appearance of the book and so gave it 4 stars.

I have many Hebrew grammars, but this one is different. Merwe discusses Discourse Analysis some, but Rocine integrates it thoughout his presentation of Hebrew. (A short discussion can be found at http://bank.rug.ac.be/da/da.htm).

This is an important way to look at Hebrew and if you have already used other grammars, it is still worthwhile to take a look at Learning Biblcal Hebrew.

The book is organized into 50 lessons in six modules, followed by eight readings of Hebrew text analyzed. It also has an introduction, but also a helpful "Where Do You Go From Here?", and verb charts, vocabulary, helpful charts, bibliography, and index.

Modules are:
1 Historical narrative genre and the system of verb forms
2 Direct speech and more on the system of verb forms
3 Comparing the Piel and Hiphil stems
4 Special Uses of Weqatal
5 The passive /reflexive stems
6 Geminate roots and more on numbers

Please be advised that this description reflects the prepublication version of the book.
