Item description for Pocket Dictionary for the Study of Biblical Hebrew (IVP Pocket Reference) by Todd J. Murphy...

Perhaps nothing is so daunting to modern seminarians asstudy of the ancient languages, Hebrew in particular. Thiseasy-to-use guide takes much of the mystery out of the little-known terminology, providing lucid examples for difficult concepts.

Publishers Description
Of Greek and Hebrew, Hebrew strikes the most fear in the heart of the Bible student. The alphabet does not look anything like English. The vocabulary offers almost no points of contact with English. The verb system is utterly alien. And the lexicons, grammars and textbooks are wrapped up in a metalanguage--spiked with Latin--that is daunting in itself. For those who feel that studying the English Old Testament is a challenge, the thought of reading it in Hebrew is extreme. Hebrew students need all the help they can get. If you are beginning your study of Hebrew and the Hebrew Bible, this pocket dictionary by Todd J. Murphy is for you. Fromablative to zaqeph qaton, it defines the tangled terms that infest Hebrew textbooks, grammars and lexicons. Here is a book that will deliver you from the perils of the Piel and the thicket of metathesis. It is an indispensable glossary that will cut through that technical language--neither Hebrew nor English--that hovers like ground fog over the study and discussion of biblical Hebrew. Now you can devote more time to enjoying biblical Hebrew in all its richness.

Helpful reference  Nov 3, 2006
Compact and concise ... I take it with me as I study away from home.
Not a Hebrew dictionary  Sep 25, 2006
First, a word of caution: This is NOT a Hebrew dictionary. I ordered it thinking that it was a dictionary of Biblical Hebrew words; but that's not what it is. It is actually a dictionary of terminology used in the study of Biblical Hebrew. In other words, it is a dictionary of technical terms from the fields of linguistics, textual criticism, and exegesical method. Fortunately, this dictionary makes a useful addition to the linguistics section of my library. I've only glanced through it a few times; but it appears to be a good reference work for students of linguistics and textual criticism. But it's not what I was looking for when I bought it. If you're looking for a Hebrew dictionary, look elsewhere.
a must-have gem for OT study  Jun 11, 2004
This book is a gem, and one I would recommend for all levels of readers of biblical Hebrew. Virtually every term utilized in teaching and learning Biblical Hebrew goes by various names, most of which don't make sense until explained to us in a concise way. This little pocket dictionary does just that; it clarifies many of the synonyms employed in teaching and learning the terminology of Biblical Hebrew. The definitions are erudite, up-to-date, and easily navigable. The dictionary also contains terms employed by text-level critics of the Hebrew OT. I recommend it to all students of the Hebrew OT.
