Asher and sh- in the Book of Ecclesiastes by W. Randall Garr

Your Price: $39.50

Just arrived, September 12

In this work, W. Randall Garr provides an exhaustive discussion of ʾašer and -š in the book of Ecclesiastes. Unlike earlier studies, he argues that the alternation between ʾašer and -š reflects semantic and pragmatic factors in each of the three clause types in which these relativizers appear: relative clauses, complement clauses, and adverbial clauses. In relative clauses, each represents a different relativization strategy. ʾAšer is the stronger nom . . . (more)

In recent decades, the study of Biblical Hebrew has profited enormously from the application of methodologies derived from general linguistics.

The papers in this volume are based on research presented at those sessions, along with additional articles specifically written for this volume. The essays included  . . . (more)

A Handbook of Biblical Hebrew

Edited by W. Randall Garr and Steven E. Fassberg

List Price: $69.50
Your Price: $62.55

Biblical Hebrew is studied worldwide by university students, seminarians, and the educated public. It is also studied, almost universally, through a single prism—that of the Tiberian Masoretic tradition, which is the best attested and most widely available tradition of Biblical Hebrew. Thanks in large part to its endorsement by Maimonides, it also became the most prestigious vocalization tradition in the Middle Ages. For most, Biblical Hebrew is synonymous with Tiberian Biblical Hebrew.

There are, however, other vocalization tra . . . (more)

The Verb in the Amarna Letters from Canaan

by Krzysztof J. Baranowski

List Price: $69.50
Your Price: $62.55

The Amarna letters from Canaan offer us a unique glimpse of the historical and linguistic panorama of the Levant in the middle of the fourteenth century BCE. Their evidence regarding verbs is crucial for the historical and comparative study of the Semitic languages. Proper evaluation of this evidence requires an understanding of its scribal origin and nature. For this reason, The Verb in the Amarna Letters from Canaan addresses the historical circumstances in which the linguistic code of the letters was born and the unique charac . . . (more)
