The purpose of this and the complementary course, ACABS 102 Elementary Classical Hebrew II (Winter Term), is to equip the beginning student with the basic tools necessary for reading the Hebrew Bible. The course will introduce the student to the grammar of biblical Hebrew; its phonology (the study of speech sounds), morphology (the study of word formation), and syntax (the study of phrase and sentence formation). In addition to mastering the grammar, the student will need to acquire a sizable working vocabulary of the language, as competency in grammar and lexicon best facilitates the goal of reading the biblical text. The grading will be based on corrected daily assignments (i.e., the textbook exercises), 13-14 announced quizzes (with one class day advance notice), a final comprehensive exam, as well as attendance and participation. The daily assignments will comprise 25% of the grade, the ten best quizzes, 25%, the final exam, 25%, and attendance and participation, 25%.
