This new and fully revised edition of A Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar serves as a user-friendly and up-to-date source of information on the morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics of Biblical Hebrew verbs, nouns and other word classes (prepositions, conjunctions, adverbs, modal words, negatives, focus particles, discourse markers, interrogatives and interjections). Building upon the initial publication by incorporating up-to-date developments in the study of the Biblical Hebrew, the grammar is both easily accessible and a fascinating examination of the language. It will be invaluable both for exegetes and translators who have completed an introductory or intermediate course in Biblical Hebrew, and also for more advanced scholars seeking to take advantage of traditional and recent descriptions of the language that go beyond the basic morphology of Biblical Hebrew.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar deserves praise for integrating traditional knowledge of Biblical Hebrew with recent thinking in general linguistics. This second and entirely revised edition will continue to serve all those who wish to base biblical exegesis on a sound analysis of the source language.' * JAN JOOSTEN, Regius Professor of Hebrew, Oxford University, United Kingdom *
'This is now the best reference grammar of Biblical Hebrew bar none! The authors have produced and utilised the latest linguistic research to improve every area (phonology, morphology, syntax, macrosyntax) and to expand the grammar so that questions can be answered now that were never answered previously. I endorse this work enthusiastically.' * PETER J. GENTRY, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, USA *
'The thoroughly-revised second edition of A Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar is without doubt the new gold standard for students and scholars of Biblical Hebrew. Its clear format, accessible prose and comprehensive coverage belie a great deal of linguistic sophistication, though the authors wear their scholarship lightly. They successfully draw from the diversity of contemporary approaches to the study of language - functionalist, formalist, cognitive, typological - yet keep the phenomena of the language itself "front and centre", making this grammar user-friendly without any loss of complexity.' * MATTHEW ANSTEY, Charles Sturt University School of Theology, Australia *
Christo van der Merwe and Jacobus Naude's new edition of A Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar is fully conversant in contemporary linguistics and grounded in the authors' deep, intricate knowledge of the language data. Their work needs to be on the digital shelf of anyone studying the Hebrew Bible or biblical languages. This is arguably the most important grammar of Hebrew to be published in several decades. * Michael Aubrey, Linguist, Editor of Koine-Greek.com *
