This monograph is a description of grammar and lexicon of Modern Hebrew, the official language of the state of Israel.

Modern Hebrew is an inflectional language, typologically close to other Semitic languages; however, the linguistic system of Modern Hebrew has undergone a significant number of changes due to the influence of Indo-European languages. This is reflected in its analytic tendencies in syntactic structures, and in the simplification of its phonological system. The Author discusses the issues of development and 'coming of age' of Modern Hebrew, and provides a brief history of the studies of the language. The book contains an analysis of the phonological system and the norms of pronunciation, and presents a sufficiently detailed analysis of the grammatical structure of the language (within the framework of this book series). The book contains appendices, with text samples, vocabularies and commentaries.

This book is recommended for Semitologists and scholars of Hebrew, philologists in other areas, historians of language, sociologists, and also everyone interested in the studies in the area of Modern Hebrew.
