Hebrew Resources

Postby zenmonkey » Sat Jan 20, 2018 10:05 am

I was surprised we didn't have a page on the language. So here are my draft notes - to be edited over the next days.

(Currently just a brain/link dump to be cleaned up)

Books
An excellent introductory book is the Routledge Course in Modern
Hebrew. It has tons of dialogues and goes through grammar for beginners. The best 'pure' grammar book is Modern Hebrew an Essential Grammar by Lewis Glinert and it is a good follow-up to the Routledge course but is probably too advanced for true beginners.

Ulpan Or

Colloquial Hebrew by Zippi Lyttleton and Tamar Wang

http://ae.lms.education.gov.il/course/view.php?id=396&lang=en - a page with a number of archived issues of the (now discontinued) beginner Hebrew newspaper Sha'ar La'Mathil (complete with audio materials)

http://www.hebrewtoday.com/ - a service for learning Hebrew through the news (paid subscription)

If it's Biblical Hebrew you're interested in, can't go wrong with Thomas O. Lambdin's Introduction to Biblical Hebrew. It has been translated into several languages, including at least Spanish, Italian, German and Russian.

Possibly also of interest for those learning Biblical Hebrew and/or Semitic historical linguistics:

http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt0.htm - the Hebrew Bible with parallel texts in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese (the latter two apparently require registration)

http://www.adath-shalom.ca/history_of_hebrew.htm - David Steinberg's History of the Ancient and Modern Hebrew Language

http://slovar-axaz.org/ - a Russian dictionary of common Semitic roots (focusing on Hebrew, Arabic and Aramaic)

http://www.sagreiss.org/cantillizer/keyboard.htm - a virtual keyboard with vowel and cantillation marks (some keys might not be available depending on the browser)

Some of the resources I use:
https://www.pealim.com/ - conjugation tables of the Hebrew verbs. You may paste a verb, and it will translate it, inform about tense and form and tell you which binyan is it. And it is 100% free!

https://www.doitinhebrew.com/Translate/ ... =IL+Hebrew - a good translator in basic (free) version. If you pay, you also have nikkud and TTS for the words, phrases or sentences

www.iwrit.pl - for Polish speakers - very good Hebrew <-> Polish dictionary

http://mila.cs.technion.ac.il/tools_analysis.html - morphological analysis tool for Hebrew. It helps a lot in understanding grammar.

I thought LearnHebrewPod was quite good.

Since my last post, I found out some new interesting resources.
1. Podcasts by Ran Levy - various topics like politics, medicine, Holy Bible and, of course, history. Each topic has its own channel:
https://www.ranlevi.com/
There are transcripts available for every episode
2. כאן אנו גרים בכיף
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... 7%99%D7%A3 - a very good comedy about a family with three sons. Since I have 5 children I perfectly understand the struggle of the parents ;)
3. היהודים באים
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... 7%99%D7%9D - skits from Israel's history and culture. For me, they are very funny.
