This project aims to produce a grammar of Biblical Hebrew that will bring together descriptions of all the known traditions of the language. It will include the traditions that are reflected by the medieval Masoretic manuscripts, with various vocalization traditions, and also the traditions found in Hebrew Bible manuscripts from Qumran, transcriptions of Biblical Hebrew from antiquity to the Middle Ages, and various oral reading traditions of Biblical Hebrew that have survived to modern times, including the Jewish oral traditions and the Samaritan tradition.
