Subject: [b-hebrew] Latest Literature on Grammar

Hello friends,

I've been out of touch for quite some time on the subject of recent advances/publications 
about b-hebrew grammar and syntax.  The reasons don't matter now, and would be 
incredibly boring.  In any event, I'm looking to get caught up, so I'm asking for any 
bibliographic info on studies, analyses, theories, you name it, especially with, say, the past 
five years or thereabouts.  On-list or off-list is fine, and I really appreciate any help I can get!
