Seldom is it the

Postby Teo » Sat Jan 04, 2014 10:48 am

This book is intended for students who are just beginning to study Aramaic. Seldom is it the language's inherent value which attracts such individuals; more often they are motivated (if not always directly) by an interest in the Bible, although some may want to explore early Judaism or Christianity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
My analysis is as follows:
The language's inherent value seldom attracts such individuals
> It is seldom the language's inherent value which/that attracts such individuals
> Seldom is it the language's inherent value which/that attracts such individuals
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is my linguistic analysis correct?
