 Poetry, Hebrew (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia) :: Bible Tools
Isaac Taylor of Ongar (The Spirit of Hebrew Poetry, 1861, 56 ff.) and Keil of Dorpat (Introduction to the Old Testament, 1881, I, 437) denied on a priori grounds the presence of epic and dramatic poetry in the Bible.
Hebrew poetry is destitute of meter in the strict sense, and also of rhyme, though this last occurs in some isolated cases (see below, III, 1, (4), c and e).
The view of the present writer may be stated as follows: That the poetry of the Hebrew is not in the strict sense metrical, though the writers under the influence of strong emotion express themselves rhythmically, producing often the phenomena which came later to be codified under metrical rules.

 Hebrew Slang and Foreign Loan Words by Raphael Sappan
Raphael Sappan, lecturer in Hebrew Language at the Haifa University Institute, has made a study of Hebrew slang, for which he received a UNESCO prize.
Yet it cannot be denied that the number of foreign loan-words in the Israeli slang vocabulary is still proportionately larger than in any other language, and that particularly in the initial period of the revival of Hebrew as a spoken language, the majority of such terms and expressions were of alien provenance.
  Later, as Hebrew became the mother tongue of an increasing proportion of the Jewish population and particularly among the youth, the Hebrew element began to predominate.
