About the Author
Shmuel Bolozky earned a B.A. in English Literature and Middle Eastern Studies at Hebrew University of Jerusalem and an M.A. in English Language, University of London. He went on to earn a Ph.D. in Linguistics, Department of Linguistics, University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois. A linguist by training, Professor Bolozky specializes in Hebrew phonology (sound systems of languages) and morphology (word formation). His work centers on natural phonetically motivated processes and on word-formation patterns and productivity. He believes that linguistics is a powerful tool in language instruction. He is Associate editor of Brill's Encyclopedia of Hebrew Language and Linguistics and is a member of the editorial board of Hebrew Studies, Shofar, and Journal of Higher Hebrew Education. He served as President of the National Association of Professors of Hebrew (NAPH), and currently is the Associate Director for Hebrew at the National Middle East Language Resource Center.
"Bolozky maintains the same format he used in the first two editions, but he drew from a new verb frequency list compiled from a 165-million word corpus of Hebrew blogs, so his selection of words to include here better reflect a middle register of everyday Hebrew language use today. Another change is that though the fully conjugated 1,532 most frequent verb forms are assigned to their respective root groups, in this edition, the internal ordering within each root group is also based on frequency."
