Thanx. This is a good resource for teaching medieval Tiberian pronunciation.

Personally, I’ve ignored this pronunciation for years, as it’s not Biblical. However, as I’m considering teaching a class in Biblical Hebrew, I realize my students would need to know and understand medieval Tiberian pronunciation, as that is the international standard when discussing Hebrew language. What I plan is to hand this .pdf file, either electronically or printed out, to the class, explain to the class that this is a medieval pronunciation that is not Biblical and that we would not follow it in class, but that they would find it useful in discussions with people outside of class.

I’ve downloaded it to my computer. Thanx.
