Re: The history of the four conjugations

... Hebrew grammars lists four conjugations: perfect ( qatal ), perfect consecutive ( weqatal ), imperfect ( yiqtol ), and imperfect consecutive ( wayyiqtol ); some add imperfect conjunctive ( weyiqtol ). I argue that the view of four conjugations is based on a misunderstanding. It is based on a se...

A good idea.

Re: Subforums (Discussion)

Jason, subject to two comments, I like your suggested approach. My first comment is whether the technical descriptions of each subforum will be/should be included after the primary name for the subforum. The issue is most acute for the last subforum "What lies behind this text?" This title...

Re: Subforums (Discussion)

This thread is for the discussion of the recently raised question of opening new subforums for specific topics. What do our members propose for subforums? While thinking about this I realized the obvious fact that a number of categories can overlap. In addition, one of the benefits of forum discuss...

Re: Subforums (Discussion)

I've commented on this topic in the Leviticus thread but will quote myself so that this new thread can be a one stop collection of members' views. Utilizing subfora would be very helpful. It would make it simpler for those who want to focus on just one or two aspects of Biblical Hebrew, or conversel...

Re: קָדוֹשׁ Leviticus 19:2

Rolf, unlike you, I understood Jason's comments to be made in the context of Modern Hebrew, not Biblical Hebrew. Jason appeared to me to be responding to Isaac Fried's post concerning Jason's modern Hebrew forum.

Re: The fallacy of "prophetic perfect"

I don't understand your position, Rolf. It seems that you think "prophetic perfect" deals with translations. It has to do with the HEBREW text. It is a perfect that is predicting the future. By rendering it with the future tense, you are confirming its reality. For what it's worth, I agree.

Re: קָדוֹשׁ Leviticus 19:2

I agree with Dewayne and Jason. Utilizing subfora would be very helpful. It would make it simpler for those who want to focus on just one or two aspects of Biblical Hebrew, or conversely to ignore certain aspects. One possible issue is the way in which folks subscribe to different parts of B-Hebrew....

Re: In Isaiah 9:6 "no end of the increase"?

William, there are folk on this forum with a much better grasp of Hebrew than I have. But I see nothing that would suggests this passage is saying "that the messianic assembly continues to grow numerically forever thru the gospel". It seems to be speaking of an increase of power, etc. As f...
