Grammar of Biblical Hebrew


Wolfgang Schneider

Although Wolfgang Schneider’s Grammatik des biblischen Hebräisch: Ein Lehrbuch serves primarily as an introductory textbook to biblical Hebrew, it makes an invaluable contribution to the text-linguistic study of Hebrew Bible. Schneider’s understanding of narrative syntax and discourse linguistics continues to influence such grammarians as Niccacci and Talstra, through whom his work is validated. His discussion of clauses and text syntax remains pertinent to Hebrew students and professors alike. With this English translation, Schneider’s work may now make a worldwide contribution to biblical studies by clarifying for the student the contribution of text grammar to the reading of the biblical text.

23 Settled Rules for Nominal Forms


23.1 Characteristics

Sign of the Feminine

The Taw (ת) is preserved in the construct state, before suffixes, and before the He locale.

Dual and Plural

A common feature of all suffix forms on dual and plural is a Jod (י) immediately before the suffix (→ however §§ 19 and 21).


When a form with doubled final syllable (e.g. “malk”) remains after a dropping of a suffix or He locale, it is a matter of a Segolatum.
