Hebrew

Hebrew (עִבְרִית) is a West Semitic language of the Afroasiatic language family. Historically, it is regarded as the language of the Hebrews/Israelites and their ancestors. The earliest examples of written Hebrew date from the 10th century BCE. Hebrew had ceased to be an everyday spoken language by around 200 CE, and survived into the medieval period only as the language of Jewish liturgy and rabbinic literature. Then, in the 19th century, it was revived as a spoken and literary language, and, according to Ethnologue, is now the language of 9 million people worldwide, of whom 7 million are from Israel. The United States has the second largest Hebrew speaking population, with about 221,593 fluent speakers, mostly from Israel. (Wikipedia)

I was never able to find any StarDict Hebrew dictionaries to convert for this website. But Jonathan Levi found some and did just that. Get Hebrew-English and English-Hebrew  dictionaries from his blog. And thanks for the kind words, Jonathan!


Did I also make local copies? Well, yes I did.

(apologies for not writing Hebrew in actual Hebrew there: the RtL writing was confusing my editor)


These dictionaries are provided free of charge. But if you want to do something for me, head to the books section of this website, get one of my e-books (even if it's one of the freebies), and leave a review at the vendor you downloaded it from. You don't have to feed my vanity. If you think the book is lousy, say so in your review.
