Generally speaking, Modern Hebrew uses a morphology based on Biblical  Hebrew 
but syntax based on Indo-European languages.  Hence, for  example, instead of 
perfect/ imperfect aspect, verbs have past/ present/  future tense.  However 
the second person singular masculine suffix is KHA  instead of the Mishnaic 
Hebrew AKH.  Much basic vocabulary is the  same, but of course there are many 
neologisms for modern things and  concepts.  But do not say "anokhi xafets 
fellafel", it's: "ani rotse  fellafel".
