Treatise on the Use of Tenses in Hebrew: And Some Other Syntactical Questions
A Treatise on the Use of the Tenses in Hebrew and Some Other Syntactical Questions' is the foundation of all modern studies of the Hebrew and Semitic verb. Driver maintained that the tenses of Hebrew verbs were employed to express types of action rather than time. While not undisputed, Driver set the tone for the conversation. While modern concerns may pay closer attention to contextuality or to state and action, many continue to acknowledge Driver's original emphasis that the Hebrew tense system is not primarily concerned with time relations.
