Chapter 1 — The Hebrew Aleph-Bet                                                                                                       Homework Index

 

 

Skills:

to be able to say, sing, and write the Hebrew alphabet in alphabetic order

 

to be able to pronounce the names of the Hebrew letters

 

to be able to easily recognize the Hebrew letters in all of their forms (both typed and hand-written)

 

to be able to transliterate the Hebrew letters

 

Reading:

Basics Grammar

• 1. The Hebrew Alphabet, all

 

Hebrew 4 Christians:

•  Unit One — Learning the Letters, 1.1–6, 9–10

 

Exercises:

Basics Workbook

•  1. The Hebrew Alphabet, all

 

Resources:

Hebrew 4 Christians

 

•  1.9 The Complete Hebrew Aleph-Bet with MP3

 

 

Habits:

Auditory

•  Say and sing the Hebrew alphabet 10 times a day so that it becomes second nature

• If you master this early on, pick a letter from the alphabet at random and try to complete the alphabet from that point onward. This will really help you when you begin to look up words using a dictionary.

 

Tactile-Kinesthetic

• Write the Hebrew alphabet (including final forms) 3 times a day. Make sure to write the alphabet right to left. Pronounce the names of the letters aloud as you write them. NOTE: There are many interesting and beneficial ways in which this can be done. I find that writing the letters large (3 or more inches) to be particularly helpful and fun. Some people use a small chalkboard or dry eraser board, and simply write them over and over again, maybe with different colors. Some people might sit down in the dirt and trace them out with a stick or finger (or if you are near the ocean in the sand). Some people paint them. Allow yourself to learn as a child.

• Write the consonantal text of the Shema once a day (Deut 6:4–5). Focus upon making the letters legible. Pronounce the names of the letters aloud as you write them. NOTE: The link actually has Deut 6:4–9, all of which of course you may practice with, but we are working toward memorizing just 6:4–5.

•  You can listen to the Shema (Deut 6:4–5) and the Complete Shema (Deut 6:4–9).

•  Hebrew 4 Christians, Hebrew Nikkudot — The Complete Hebrew Vowel List. NOTE: The nice thing about this chart is that the Hebrew name of the letter is actually presented in Hebrew and so will help with learning to  pronounce the names of the vowels.

 

Exercises:

Basics Workbook

•  2. The Hebrew Vowel, all

 

Habits:

Auditory

•  Practice reading the Shema aloud for 5 minutes a day. Initially focus upon proper pronunciation of words, saying each word three times. When individual words start to become comfortable, begin pronounce two then three words together at time, again saying each phrase three times.

•  You can listen to the Shema (Deut 6:4–5) and the Complete Shema (Deut 6:4–9).

 

Tactile-Kinesthetic

• Write the Hebrew alphabet (including final forms) 3 times a day. Pronounce the names of the letters aloud as you write them.

• Write the text of the Shema once a day, both vowels and consonants (Deut 6:4–5). Focus upon making the letters legible. Pronounce the names of the letters and vowels aloud as you write them.

Memorization and Auditory Work                                                                                                             Homework Index

Note:

Since memorization takes time, I have identified the major memory work that will be required prior to our July 16th meeting. I would begin right away on these. Get your vocabulary cards ready and start reading through and writing your pronouns out every day even if you do not get to that chapter’s work until later.

 

 

Vocabulary:

Grammar:

Personal Pronouns. Be able to produce the following from memory, which are from Chapter 8 of Basics and which can be found in a convenient chart here (Alternatively, go to Grammar » J Ted Blakley » “Personal and Demonstrative Pronouns”)

• Independent Personal Pronouns (see Note below)

• Near Demonstrative Pronouns — this, these

• Far Demonstrative Pronouns — that, those

 

NOTE: For some reason the Basics Grammar organizes the personal pronouns in a chart beginning with first person, then second person, then third person, which is what is typically done in English but not in Hebrew. In most Hebrew grammars, they are introduced beginning with third, then second, then first. The reason for this is that Hebrew verbs are organized from third to first because the third person masculine singular is the most basic verb form. So, please use my chart and not the grammar’s. This will also apply when working with pro­nom­inal suffixes.

 

 

Pronominal Suffixes on Nouns

•  Be able to produce the pronominal suffix paradigm for the noun סוּס (horse), which can be found in Nouns with Pronominal Suffixes. DO NOT learn it in the form found in Basics 9.4.

Reading:

Basics Grammar

•  9. Hebrew Pronominal Suffixes, all

   At first glance, this chapter is a bit overwhelming, with detailed paradigms on almost every page. But take courage, most of this is variation on a theme. As with the personal pronouns, one of the big drawbacks of Basics’ presentation is the way they organize their paradigms from first person to third person instead of from third to first person which is how all of the verb paradigms will be presented. Consequently, I will provide you with all of the paradigm charts required for this chapter. When you see my charts, you will notice that I have used a slightly different nomenclature (taken from Seow’s grammar). Whereas Basics discusses Type 1 and Type 2 pronominal suffixes and then identifies some alternative forms for the Type 1 suffixes, I present these as Types A, B, and C. Note how these types relate to one another

 

             Seow         Basics   

             Type A   »   Type 1

             Type B   »   Type 1 alternative

             Type C   »   Type 2

Memorization and Auditory Work                                                                                                              Homework Index

Note:

Since memorization takes time, I have identified the major memory work that will be required prior to our August 14th meeting. I would begin right away on these. Get your vocabulary cards ready and start reading through and writing your pronouns out every day even if you do not get to that chapter’s work until later.

 

 

 

Vocabulary will cover chapters 9–13

•  Basics Grammar, 10.7 (= 19 words)

•  Basics Grammar, 11.8 (= 19 words)

•  Basics Grammar, 12.18 (= 18 words) • SEE the Note on Learning Hebrew Verbs (below)

•  Basics Grammar, 13.15 (= 14 words)

 

Note on Learning Hebrew Verbs. Beginning in Chapter 12 your vocabulary learning will start to include verbs. If you look at the list on 12.18 you will notice that for verbs the English equivalent is given in the infinitive form (to plus the verb). Yet, the form in which the Hebrew verb occurs is not the Hebrew infinitive form but the Qal perfect third masculine singular, which is the form that normally occurs in the Hebrew lexicons. Of course, the form that occurs in English lexicons is the infinitive, which is why Basics has chosen the English infinitive in learning Hebrew vocabulary. The obvious problem, which many other grammars have corrected, is that if you were to translate any of these verbs occurring in this form in a Hebrew text, you wouldn’t translate them with an English infinitive but with an English indicative in the past tense. Thus, the first verb is not “to eat” but “he ate.” Consequently, when you create your Hebrew vocabulary cards and memorize Hebrew verbs, use “he...” not “to...”  So, when you make out your vocabulary cards, make sure to use a 3MS past tense English translation as in:

                he ate

                he said

                he went

                he walked

                he was, he happened, he became

                he sat, he dwelled, he inhabited

                he gave

                he did, he made

                he saw

                he ceased, he rested

                he heard, he gave ear to, he obeyed

 

Later on, we will come across weak (i.e., irregular) verbs whose lexical form is not the qal perfect 3MS form but in the qal infinitive form, in which case you would learn them with “to . . .” and not “he . . .”

 

Vocabulary:

Vocabulary will cover chapters 9–13

•  Basics Grammar, 15.11 (= 15 words) • SEE the Note on Learning Hebrew Verbs — Part 2 (below)

•  Basics Grammar, 17.10 (= 14 words)

 

Note on Learning Hebrew Verbs — Part 2. Beginning in Chapter 12 your vocabulary learning started to include verbs. As I noted last time, the lexical form for most Hebrew verbs is the Qal Perfect 3MS, which equates not to the English infinitive (“to” plus the verb) but to a past tense verb with the subject of he (e.g., he ate, he said). Now in Hebrew as in English there are a class of irregular verbs, which in Hebrew they are referred to as weak verbs. Weak verbs, for various reasons, do not follow the same pattern as strong verbs. We will not be getting into weak verbs except for one issue that comes up in learning vocabulary. Specifically, there are a category of weak verbs variously called middle weak, middle hollow, or CVC. Basics refers to them as biconsonantal verbs (see 14:12–13). Basically, as their name implies, biconsonantal verbs for all practical purposes have just two consonants instead of three, having lost the middle radical (thus the name middle weak or middle hollow). Yet, in most Hebrew dictionaries the lexical entries of verbs must still be listed with three consonants. So the lexical entry of biconsonantal verbs is not the Qal Perfect 3MS but the Qal Infinitive where the middle consonant, which is really a vowel letter (either a hireq-yod, a holem-vav, or a sureq), reappears. Consequently, the English equivalent for these verbs will be an English infinitive. So when you come, for instance, to the vocabulary list on 15.11 (p171), you will notice that the fourth verb listed has a sureq for its middle consonant, which indicates that this is its infinitive form. So here are the English equivalents for the six verbs listed.

                he lived

                he was able

                he cut off, he made a covenant

                to turn

                he answered

                he served

 

Grammar

Qal Imperfect Strong Verb

•  Memorize the Qal Imperfect Preformatives and Sufformatives and be able produce a strong verb in all of its Qal Imperfect forms (15.3, 5). That is, if I give you a triconsonantal root, be able to produce the Qal imperfect paradigm for that verb.

•  The Qal Imperfect paradigm is available on online, as an mp3 with or without, and in two pdf files, Qal Perfect and Imperfect and Qal Perfect and Imperfect — Detailed

Reading:

Basics Grammar

•  12. Introduction to Hebrew Verbs, just read

   This chapter introduces you to Hebrew verbs, which, as you can see from the table of contents, is what the rest of the grammar is devoted to. This is one of the best introductions and overviews on Hebrew verbs that I have come across. The goal of this chapter is to give you the big picture of the Hebrew verbal system so that as you become slowly introduced to its various stems, tenses, forms, irregularities, etc. you will have some way of organizing and relating the parts to one another within the whole. So, read this chapter carefully but don’t study it because you will learn what you will need to learn later. One thing I would encourage you to do as you progress through Hebrew verbs is to come back and simply reread this chapter every month or two, which will help keep you oriented.
