Excerpt from A Hebrew Word-Book for Study and Class-Room: Comprising Common Hebrew Words Grouped by Roots, Meaning of These Words, Alphabetical List of Them Without Vowel Points, English List With References to Corresponding Hebrew, Making an English-Hebrew Vocabulary
It ought to be stated that in some cases a doubtful deri vation has served as a basis for grouping words, not for the purpose of expressing an opinion as to the historical rela tion of the words to each other, but because of their possible connection, and the desirability of associating them in thought.
It need hardly be said that the compiler is indebted to the lexicons and concordances for the material used in this vocabulary. He desires also to acknowledge his obligation to President W. R. Harper for his first special interest in the Hebrew language and for an appreciation of the value in study and class-room of good word-lists.
If this little word-book shall fulfil the compiler's hopes by helping to a facility in the use of the Hebrew Bible, the labor involved in its preparation will be amply rewarded.
