Reminder about the forms of אִשָּׁה

Reminder about the forms of אִשָּׁה . The root of the word is the same as that of "person" — אנ״שׁ (alef-nun-shin). In the singular absolute, the nun assimilates into the shin: אנ״שׁ > *אִנְשָׁה > אִשָּׁה We would expect the construct of *אִשַּׁת , but this isn't what happens to it. It bec...

Composition for Text II, Number 4

This is the exercise that I did quickly without talking during our session last night. I figured I would use the forum to talk through it with you. And the Lᴏʀᴅ said unto him: ‘Wherefore speakest thou thus? Thy wife, Sarah, will bear thee a son and he will walk in thy ways and I shall bless him.’ We...

Re: Assignment for September 16

Is there anything that surprises you from the reading in Arnold and Choi?

Is there anything that doesn't make sense or needs clarification?

Assignment for September 16

Hey, guys. Jonathan has asked that we look over Arnold & Choi §4.1 on prepositions as preparation for Thursday's lesson. Also, go ahead and start looking at the second composition and reading through the notes. It's a great idea to read through the notes before beginning your composition so that...

Re: Assignment for Tuesday, September 7

Re: Composition from Text I

Here's my 8. It took nearly 4 hours (not in one sitting). This is waaaay too long. How could I work faster? I think that if we had done more English-to-Hebrew work before this, it would have come along a bit more easily. It's like trying to do exercises for the first time. If you've never lifted we...
