The amount of scientific publications written in unvocalized Modern Hebrew increases with every passing year. No serious student of Hebrew, Semitics, Biblical Studies and Judaism can ignore them. This chrestomathy seeks to assist students with basic knowledge of Biblical Hebrew and its vocabulary to read such publications. A brief introduction highlights principal differences between the structure of Biblical Hebrew and that of Modern written, scientific Hebrew. The following anthology consists of short unadapted, original texts extracted from scientific journals, monographs, encyclopaedia articles and the like. The texts are divided into four groups: those dealing with Hebrew and Semitic linguistics, Biblical studies, Palestinian archaeology, and Judaism. Each group is a self-contained unit, so that students can begin with any of the four. The first text of each group is fully vocalized with a literal English translation on the facing page. The amount of vocalization gradually decreases. Each text is provided with copious linguistic notes. A bilingual glossary completes the work.
