Already well known in its two-volume first edition, this is the most extensive revision yet of one of the most complete Hebrew Grammars available in English. This edition brings the work up to the present by taking account of developments in our understanding of the Hebrew language during the intervening years. The work is now presented in a paperback single volume. Professor Muraoka hopes that this helps to make the book more attractive and the content easier to use. As with the ear-lier edition students of the Old Testament, Hebrew and Semitics who have a basic knowledge of Bib-lical Hebrew will find much useful insight and information here.

This updated version combines the two volumes of earlier editions. The 2006 edition takes account newer developments such as 'discourse grammar'. Jouon-Moraoka remains an outstanding Grammar that deserves to be on the shelf of every student of the Hebrew language. It has a way of describing the subtleties of the language without burdening the reader. It is far less cumbersome than Gesenius-Kautzsch and it leaves you fascinated with the language.
