Hebrew Grammar Outline Keyed to Basics of Biblical Hebrew , 2 nd edition by Gary Pratico & Miles Van Pelt 1 Compiled by James M. Branum May 2014 Introductory note: I am a seminary student but previously was a law student (graduated from law school in 2005). Much of the experience of law school and seminary is dissimilar, but one element is the same --- the need to comprehend, remember, organize and apply large amounts of information. A common study technique in law school is the preparation of outlines, normally about 20-30 pages for student-written outlines, or between 200-300 pages for commercial outlines (sold by companies to help law students prepare for exams), as well as some unusual forms (I often condensed longer outlines down to 2 pages, and sometimes even 1 page as a method of studying). Since Biblical Hebrew has been an incredibly difficult subject for me, I decided to use the outline technique to prepare for my Hebrew final (which fortunately was open book, allowing us to use our textbook and lexicon, which meant the most important thing to do in preparation was to be able to quickly find relevant information in the textbook on the fly, which is why this outline is keyed to our textbook.) As for coverage, I think I did a decent job of outline the first half of the class (all of the grammar besides verbs) but it is much weaker in the second half of the outline. In the future (for my own learning) I will probably rewrite this section. But for those interested, I m sharing the outline anyway incomplete as it is. Use at your own risk. I. Writing A. Consonents 1. Gutturals: חהעא and sometimes ר 2 2. Begadkephat: letters that can take a dagesh lene 3 1 See 2 p. 3 3 P. 2-3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
