Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book A Medieval Karaite Pedagogical Grammar of Hebrew: A Critical Edition and English Translation of Kitāb al-ʿUqūd fī Taṣārīf al-Luġa al-ʿIbrāniyya contains the table of contents, list of abbreviations, transcription guide, preface, and acknowledgements. The book contains a critical edition and an English translation of Kitāb al-ʿUqūd, accompanied by a study of the vocalisation of the manuscripts and a terminological glossary. It draws on both Harunian and early grammars, and develops new approaches to verbal systematisation in order to produce a full account of the verbal system of Hebrew. Kitāb al-ʿUqūd was instrumental in the transmission of the Karaite grammatical tradition to Byzantium. It contains important data on the Karaite method of verbal classification called the 'method of symbols', and reviews the Karaite tool-box for teaching Hebrew grammar, which contains mnemonics, algorithms of parsing and model analyses of biblical passages.

Keywords: biblical passages; Byzantium; Harunian grammar; Hebrew verbal system; Karaite grammatical tradition; Kitāb al-ʿUqūd fī Taṣārīf al-Luġa al-ʿIbrāniyya; verbal classification
