[b-hebrew] Hebrew grammar books

We didn't distinguish the difference.  The books were for Hebrew, and 
to understand the Torah, we were taught Torah with the text of Rashi, 
who did base many of his comments on grammar.  Since then I have 
learned that some of Chazal who explained Torah were known to be 
famous "linguists" in Hebrew.

So I suppose, that the grammar I learned formally as such, applied to 
spoken Hebrew, and to understand Torah, some grammar just kind of 
seeped in, we learned to get a feel for the way Hashem expresses 
Himself in the Torah, rather than the "rules"

Were these for biblical Hebrew or modern Hebrew?
