Forwarding an innovative study reference for both introductory and advanced students of Hebrew, J. David Pleins's Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary by Conceptual Categories helps students remember vocabulary based on logical categories of related words. Focusing on nouns and including over 175 word groupings including pottery, ships, birds, jewelry, seasons, and many more, this resource moves students beyond rote memorization to a more dynamic grasp of Hebrew vocabulary, ultimately equipping them to read with more fluidity and with a deeper and more intuitive grasp of the biblical text.
Additional Features Include:
- A definition and Hebrew Bible reference for each Hebrew term to allow readers to see the word in context
- Two helpful appendices equip students for further study. These include 1) a Guide for Further Reading where recommendations are given for helpful resources for studying the larger macro categories and 2) Lists of "cluster verses" where several words in a given category appear together, giving students the ability to see how these words function together in context.
- Words that hapax legomena (words appearing only once in the Hebrew Bible) are marked with an "H" and words that are rare and appear less than 10 times are marked with an "R."
