The Hebrew is displayed beautifully on the Kindle and Nook. It contains glosses for every lexeme (word) in Biblical Hebrew (over 8000) and Biblical Aramaic (over 700).

A. Clines), and other sources to present the best of contemporary scholarship. Here are some of its characteristics:

– It aligns proper names with the spelling of most current English Bible translations.
– It updates archaic meanings to modern norms of language.
– It provides glosses for precisely the verbal stems that appear in the Bible.
– It provides separate glosses for all homonyms.
Most books that you read on the Kindle and the Nook are read linearly. That is, you read one page after the next. However, this is not typically the case with a dictionary, so we have provided a variety of techniques for you to be able to navigate efficiently and effectively. Both the Kindle version and the Nook version provide you with fully interactive tables of contents, and they also both provide ways in which you can quickly type in a precise entry to which to navigate. The details differ between the two platforms, but you can read more detail on how to navigate The Comprehensive Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Glossary on the Kindle and how to navigate The Comprehensive Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Glossary on the Nook.

There are free Kindle and Nook apps for platforms other than the e-readers themselves (e.g. PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, etc.). Can I use this e-book on the Kindle and Nook apps for platforms other than the e-readers themselves?
Yes! While these are optimized for the e-reader devices themselves, they will work just fine in the various Kindle and Nook applications for other devices. In fact, even if you do not own an e-reader, you can purchase this resource for convenient, offline use on these other platforms.
