Has anyone here worked extensively with the Jouon/Muraoka grammar? I seem to remember having it in my hands once or twice, but I don't think it immediately impressed me as outdoing trusty old Gesenius - if only because the BDB lexicon and (I think) Koehler/Baumgartner are keyed to it. Do tell me what I've been missing!

Jouon speaks in clearer language, and it's nice having a second explanation. Also, having a second scripture index means that if a verse isn't mentioned in one, it may well be in the other. I've been using the Logos version.

Ah, clearer language! I've never understood why people are so unhappy these days about the magnificently ponderous, meticulous turn of phrase of the good old humanist grammars. I for one wouldn't give up my Herbert Weir Smyth for my life. Long live the oratund septagenarians!

(Different strokes, aye?)

The newer JM grammar is much better than the previous edition, which Logos has.

Because the grammar is so new, I'm not sure if anyone has used it extensively. But I've spent some time with it, and I think that it is definitely the best Hebrew grammar available.

John,

Please note Michael's description: "The newly revised edition of A Grammar of Biblical Hebrew." I'm assuming he's talking about the most recent publication.

The grammar has been recently revised. Here's a description: https://www.eisenbrauns.com/ECOM/_21W13GWDJ.HTM

It is much, much better than the old edition that you are referring to.

From the email I received, I assumed the same. Guess we'll find out more as the summer approaches.

The JoŁon-Muraoka edition that we are producing is the 2nd edition, printed as one volume in 2006.

We will get more information out to you about price and release date as soon as we are able to do so.
