Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
David Kimhi, who lived in Spain from 1160 to 1235, wrote this book to summarize what was known of Hebrew grammar at his time. Much of the material remains valid by the standards of current scholarship; the superseded parts are of-interest as the working knowledge of generations of grammarians, poets, and commentators.

This edition is a translation of the work from Hebrew into English with extensive annotation by the translator. The annotation provides background to the original text's terse rules, tracing for each the multi-generational process of individuals discerning mechanisms and order in the features of the language. Taken in whole, the annotation is a history of traditional and modern scholarship in the field of the Hebrew language, which the translator/annotator has chosen to hang on the frame of Kimhi's book. The coverage of the give-and-take over centuries and the use of a classic Medieval text as the basis for it all makes the final product more than anything a demonstration of the riches to be found in pre-modern, non-academic sources.

Contrary to the product description, this is not a bilingual edition. It includes only the English translation of Kimhi's book. Also, it is a free translation and changes the order of the sections.

This book is a classic. It provides information that can be quite specialized and difficult to find in a form that is readily accessible.
