Subject: Conditional Sentences in Contemporary Hebrew,Tali Bar

Conditional Sentences in Contemporary Hebrew 
Structure, Meaning, and Usage of Tenses 
Tali Bar 

The book deals with Contemporary Hebrew Conditional Sentences,
classified from a structural point of view.

The Hebrew language is rich in conditional expressions, simple and
complex. Conditionality is expressed there by various means, specific
conjunctions on the one hand, and negators and adverbial subordinators
on the other hand. Conditional sentences are among the most
complicated of structures. They contain a great variety of subtlety of
nuances; some constructions are transparent, in which the condition is
expressed in typical patterns, and in others the conditional meaning
is implied from the context. The tense and mood system there,
characterized by complex tenses and by shifting to the past, is
different from that found elsewhere. These issues are discussed here.

The book is aimed and intended to introduce the structural, semantic,
contextual, and stylistic aspects of the Present-Day Hebrew
Conditionals. It provides a short presentation of their logical aspect
without being sidetracked to areas irrelevant to the linguistic
discussion, and it clarifies their boundaries as a linguistic
category. The description and conclusions are based on evidence taken
from a wide and diverse corpus, which gives a comprehensive coverage
of the language. Dealing with conditionality, the author also briefly
discusses some other important traits of the language, such as the
modal usage of the Hebrew infinitive; the relation between
coordination and subordination and general features of the Hebrew
tense system.
