In a series of articles, we will take apart the grammatical structures
in some well-known Hebrew texts, starting with the Declaration of
Independence (מְגִלַּת הָעַצְמָאוּת megilat ha-atzma'ut, literally
"the scroll of independence") of the State of Israel.
Written and signed in 1948 (5708), this declaration is an example
of formal yet modern and secular Hebrew.
