I have a "manuscript" laserprinted version of this book which I bought from Bryan Rocine several years ago before regularly published. It has only 432 pages, and I do not know the final appearance of the book and so gave it 4 stars.
I have many Hebrew grammars, but this one is different. Merwe discusses Discourse Analysis some, but Rocine integrates it thoughout his presentation of Hebrew. (A short discussion can be found at http://bank.rug.ac.be/da/da.htm).
This is an important way to look at Hebrew and if you have already used other grammars, it is still worthwhile to take a look at Learning Biblcal Hebrew.
The book is organized into 50 lessons in six modules, followed by eight readings of Hebrew text analyzed. It also has an introduction, but also a helpful "Where Do You Go From Here?", and verb charts, vocabulary, helpful charts, bibliography, and index.
1 Historical narrative genre and the system of verb forms
2 Direct speech and more on the system of verb forms
3 Comparing the Piel and Hiphil stems
4 Special Uses of Weqatal
5 The passive /reflexive stems
6 Geminate roots and more on numbers
