The Michlol was David Kimchi’s chief grammatical work. It treats verbs comprehensively, covering the rules governin, changes of pronunciation and accents. It also contains complete tables of conjugations and is distinguished by its conciseness and clarity of style. Indeed, these qualities resulted in the Michlol’s supremacy over previous works. For centuries it was considered preeminent in its field. See M. Waxman, Vol. I, p. 179.
