Claims that modern Hebrew is not a natural continuation of the classical language overlook the fact that all languages include multiple registers and change over time. Modern Hebrew continues the language’s longstanding use of roots and patterns to form new words. Apparent anomalies, such as its numerals, possessive structures, stress patterns, and the syntax of existential statements, follow common linguistic processes and can often be found in earlier stages of Hebrew.

Keywords:   Hebrew, language change, numerals, patterns, roots, stress
