New resource . . .

For those who are interested, I added a new resource to my list: Russell Fuller’s recently published intermediate grammar. This is the grammar most of my analysis is based on: grammatical categories, accents, etc. Also, I do plan to make more videos.

Update . . . .

Thank you for your patience. Since my last post my wife and I have moved to a new house and have welcomed two young toddlers into our home. We are currently fostering them with the goal of adoption.

Currently my schedule is crazy as I learn to incorporate raising two toddlers. I will start posting soon. . . . . I hope. 🙂

Ruth 1:10c

About 1 min. into the video I introduce the “hovering dagesh.” I failed to mention that it represents a doubled consonant. Happy viewing!
