I am interested in understanding the Tenach better, as well as rules related to leining.
I have resources for learning biblical Hebrew. Vocabulary lists, and charts showing verb conjugations.
If I get to the stage where I can understand Tenach ok, i.e. to the point where I know sufficient biblical Hebrew for that, would I be ok reading the Minchas Shai?
I'm guessing the Minchas Shai isn't available in English
I know a few words like Chaser Ktiv which I guess the Minchas Shai might use..
Looking at it now, it looks tough
Like it's written in Rashi script even
I am aware of two books on Mishnaic Hebrew, (one by Segal, one by Fernandez).
Though I guess the rabbinical Hebrew it uses is a later Hebrew.
I hardly know any modern Hebrew as I've been focussing on biblical.
What type of Hebrew does it use and how could I prepare myself to read it?
