Modern Hebrew belongs to the semitic language family. At the end of the 19th century, Hebrew was mostly used only as a liturgical language, but it was then revived as an everyday spoken language and its vocabulary began to be broadened. The driving spirit behind the revival of Hebrew was Eliezer Ben-Yehuda. The most important feature of Hebrew script is that it is read from right to left and that, for the most part, only the consonants are written down.
