A Studentís Vocabulary for Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic: Frequency Lists with Definitions, Pronunciation Guide, and Index
Mitchel, Larry A.

Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2017 pp. xxiv + 88. $14.99


Description: A Student's Vocabulary for Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic provides the student with a vocabulary list by word frequency for words appearing ten times or more in the Hebrew text. Unlike other vocabulary lists, this work combines all word forms in a single list, simplifying the student's task of learning all words of a given frequency. Words are given in groups of thirty or fewer in order to provide the students with short, manageable learning blocks. The vocabulary list also gives the basic meaning of each word, a phonetic pronunciation guide, key information about the word's part of speech, and the number of times each word appears in the Hebrew text. A separate section of the vocabulary list contains all Aramaic words appearing in the Old Testament. A Student's Vocabulary for Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic is a tool that will be welcomed and used by all students of Hebrew.

Subjects: Methods, Linguistics, Hebrew
