Do bear in mind, however, that Isaac Fried's approach to Hebrew is not widely accepted (if at all). Please consider that when appraising his critique of Horowitz's work.

I think is one of the better books on this delicate subject. He
subscribes to the idea of two-consonant roots but I am disappointed
at his failure to see that the Hebrew root is invariably composed of
single-consonant roots. Also his missing the obvious fact that the
vowels I and U (and eventually E and O) are identity markers or
personal pronouns.
