Hebrew grammar rules

Boyz Beller Boyz Beller (0) on 06/07/16

what are rules for changing sounds(vowels) of verbs. In other words, what grammar rules dictate a change from kamatz to patach or vice versa, in the other vowels as well.

Also how can a root have a meaning. I thought a root takes on meaning only when vowels &consonants are added. Where in writing are the meanings of roots



Modern Hebrew grammar is partly analytical, expressing such forms as dative, ablative, and accusative using prepositional particles rather than morphological cases. However, inflection plays a decisive role in the formation of the verbs, the declension of prepositions (i.e. with pronominal suffixes), and the genitive construct of nouns as well as the formation of the plural of nouns and adjectives. Every Hebrew sentence must contain at least one subject, at least one predicate, usually but not always a verb, and possibly other arguments and complements. Sentence structure in Hebrew is somewhat similar to that in English, but there are a number of differences. For example, the verb to be is not used in the present tense, resulting in a number of special present-tense structures. Here is the website to learn more about the grammar.
