FRI:  [1]Written Assignment: Chisholm Workbook, Jon 1:1-3 Analysis (pp. 23-30).

[a] Answer *completely* all the analysis questions of Step 2 (pp. 22-29) and provide your translation in Step 3 (on bottom of p. 29).  NOTE: I do not require you to do Step 1 as a separate initial step; when you’re going through your analysis, you should be identifying all verbal forms anyway.  Skip Step 4.

[b] Read over my document, Jonah 1.1-3 Gloss and Questions Marshall, and prepare answers to each of the questions.

[c] Please feel free to use the Parsing Sheets I’ve provided in “Restricted Access” and bring those to class as the basis for our discussion of forms and grammar. If you’re not using these, then take notes in your own homework notes (whether hand-written or typed) be sure to parse any forms that you cannot parse by sight.

NOTE WELL: When you’re completing these workbook assignments, you should have several reference works *opened* and being consulted whenever Chisholm references them–Van Pelt/Pratico or Ross (depending on which intro grammar you used–note that I constantly make reference to Ross because that’s the grammar I teach from, so please made adjustments to VPP where applicable), Waltke-O’Connor (WO), Willams’ Hebrew Syntax (edited by Beckman, WHS), van der Merwe (BHRG), and one of the Hebrew lexicons: Holladay, HALOT, or BDB.  If you have any of the other grammars (Jouon, GKC, Arnold/Choi), by all means use them!

 [2] Read Youngblood commentary on 1:1-3 (from now on, whenever you prepare a segment of Hebrew text in Jonah, read the corresponding portion of Youngblood’s Jonah commentary from the ZECOT series).
