Thanks for the email.  I'd be very interested in that title.  When will it be out?  

Also are you familiar with Aaron Rubin's book "Grammaticalization in Semitic Language"?  I think it's also Eisenbraun's?  Would you recommend this?

>Dear Charles,
>Eisenbrauns is shortly coming out with a grammar of Hebrew by Joshua Blau in the Linguistic Studies in Ancient West Semitic series, unders the editorship of M. O'Connor. It is a translation/revision/updating of a Modern Hebrew version that Blau has been developing and using for years. I have only seen a portion of the manuscript, but my understanding is that he makes reference fairly frequently to comparative data, especially Arabic. Thus, this book will be easily available and reasonably priced.
