Re: The fallacy of "prophetic perfect"

Dear Jason, Yes, we are clearly talking past each other. The term "prophetic perfect" is a technical term related to Bible translation. I give two definitions of “prophetic perfect" from Hebrew Grammars: Davidson, Hebrew Syntax , 58–63: The simple perf. is used to express an action c...

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. This is precisely the case. I was talking about how I teach Hebrew and how I use my fo...

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.

Re: The fallacy of "prophetic perfect"

As for your last clause, I do not know the origin of your feeling. But such a feeling is strange for a Hebrew scholar, because the issue of “prophetic perfect” has to do with how Hebrew should be translated. And translation is not a distraction. (1) I am not a Hebrew scholar. Never made that claim....

Re: קָדוֹשׁ Leviticus 19:2

I prefer to use language in communication with comprehensible input (see Stephen Krashen ). Grammar explanations are only used to fill in blanks. Seeing that you don't see what goes on in our sessions but only fill-in-the-blank materials that I add for explanation after-the-fact, I don't think that ...

Re: קָדוֹשׁ Leviticus 19:2

Will a discussion of "prophetic perfect" help us better understand the Classical Hebrew as a real language? What is your opinion regarding "prophetic perfect? I imagine that a discussion of any feature of biblical Hebrew that can be exhibited in the text should be useful. The book of...

Re: Subforum for teaching & learning Hebrew (pedagogy)?

Would it be helpful to add a subforum to focus on the pedagogy of learning Hebrew as a real language? I know, Jason, that you have established a website/forum for this purpose, but would it help with discussion, do you think? One real tangible difference is that my own forum is devoted most directl...

Re: קָדוֹשׁ Leviticus 19:2

Yes, as I stated above, I'm aware that you have a self-published book out there. It is not my responsibility to knock down the claims of idiosyncratic theorists. Your approach to Hebrew is nearly akin to how conspiracy theories approach reality. It is not the responsibility of those who do not buy w...
