About-

'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.
