Excerpt from Practical Introductory Hebrew Grammar

This Grammar differs from other primary Hebrew Grammars chiefly in two respects: its compactness of form attained, it is believed, without loss of important matter and the facilities it offers for acquiring, during the study of the grammatical principles, a choice Hebrew vocabulary. All words used in the Hebrew Bible over fifty times, the most of those used between twenty-five and fifty times, and not a few of those, of connected roots, used less than twenty-five times are here found, and they are the only Hebrew words employed in the book. Seven hundred of them are made use of in Parts 1 and 2, and three hundred in the additional Exercises (pp. 123-130). It is, of course, to be expected that the student will make special effort to memorize these words as they occur; but the process, it is confidently hoped, will be greatly facilitated by the structure of the Grammar itself.1. The words are arranged in the several Vocabularies under their respective root-forms. 2.They are very generally accompanied by notes and mnemonics for the purpose of calling special attention to them and fixing them in mind.3. They are used in the illustrations of principles; in the various tables of inflected forms; and, all of them, in the Exercises for translation.4. Attention is repeatedly called to them by a careful system of cross references.5 An alphabetical list is given (pp. 118-120)to serve as a test of the students acquaintance with the Vocabularies already gone over, as well as for general reference.6. The Exercises for translating Hebrew into English are purposely placed apart from the Vocabularies in order to encourage independence of them.7. And, finally, in Ap.ii. (A) about six hundred of the words are associated together in the form of synonyms; and (B)three hundred of similar form or sound are discriminated from one another. Among many advantages of this method, it has been found that, without any considerable increase of the time required to master the principles of the Grammar, the student, while so engaged, has also made a fair beginning in the much neglected departments of Hebrew etymology and synonomy; and, still better, acquired a vocabulary sufficient to enable him to read at sight in the historical books of the Bible. The use of mnemonics is simply incidental to the general plan; but, far-fetched and even ridiculous as some of the suggestions are acknowledged to be, they have proved, after an experience of some years, very effective for their purpose. The only other systematic attempt of the kind with which I am acquainted is that of Stier (Hebraisches Vocabularium, Leipz., 1871), who, however, used the system to a very limited extent.
