A SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE HEBREW LANGUAGE
(in 100 words or less)
The Hebrew Language is built around three-letter root words, each of which forms the core of the nouns, verbs, and other parts of speech relating to that root. The nuances of eating, feeding, being fed, digesting, being eaten, gluttony, slaughtering knife, devouring, eatable and, indeed, the word food itself, are all created by the addition of predictable and consistent prefixed, suffixed, infixes (inserted letters), and vowels which attach to a single, unique, three-letter root (shoresh). The keys to understanding are: identifying the root and identifying the function of the letters and vowels attaching to the root.
This book can teach you to do that, in just a few hours.
