A few weeks ago, this blog hosted a lively discussion about tense, mood, and aspect in the verbal system of ancient Hebrew. A number of top researchers in the field participated in the debate, and clarified their points of view in the process. The exchange is informal in style, and would be hard for those concerned to revise according to the more formal conventions of peer-reviewed publications in the field. This became clear in follow-up correspondence. The exchange, therefore, will remain as is, but I thank those who suggested that it was worthy of publication elsewhere, and Ehud Ben-Zvi of JHS for his willingness to consider publication there. For the convenience of future readers, Here is the whole thing as a single downloadable file with an attached cumulative bibliography.
