  • From This to That: Transformation in Biblical Hebrew
    • Abstract: It is tempting to analyze syntax and semantics as though they are completely separate aspects of a language's grammar, but there are instances in which a joint discussion is required. Resultative constructions are one such example. A resultative construction is one in which an agent (X) makes an object (Y) into another object (Z).1 These constructions actually comprise a large "family" of constructions that share "important properties but [differ] in certain specifics."2 In English they are identified, first, by an adverbial or prepositional phrase in the position of a verbal argument,3 and second, by the fact that one of the noun phrases is undergoing some kind of motion or change of state.4 The object that ...

  • Prepositional Predicates with Nominalized Subjects in Classical Hebrew
    • Abstract: Prepositional predicates in initial position with nominalized subjects constitute a modal pattern in Hebrew. Only a scanty group of prepositions is employed for this purpose. Three examples follow—two from Biblical Hebrew and one from Rabbinic Hebrew:1Joab said to the man who told him: If you saw him, why did you not strike him there to the ground' It would have been incumbent on me to give you ten pieces of silver and a belt (2 Sam 18:11).It is not for you, Uzziah, to make offering to the Lord, but for the priests the descendants of Aaron, who are consecrated to make offering (2 Chr 26:18).If one of them that lived in the courtyard forgot (to take part in the Eruv), he must forego his right of access (t. Eruv. ... Read More

  • Symposium: Does Archaic Biblical Hebrew Exist' Pamela Barmash
    • Abstract: Much ink has been spilled on whether a distinction can be drawn between the Hebrew of the First Temple period (Classical Biblical Hebrew) and the Hebrew of the Second Temple period (Late Biblical Hebrew). This journal has recently devoted sections of two issues to this debate, Hebrew Studies 46 (2005) and Hebrew Studies 47 (2006), and a review essay on this topic was published in Hebrew Studies 54 (2013). This extensive interest has been mainly due to the question of whether texts can be dated by means of chronological levels of Hebrew they manifest: whether this methodology is valid and accurate has profound significance for the reconstruction of Israelite history, religion, and culture as well as for the history ...

  • Glimpsing Archaic Biblical Hebrew through Thetical Grammar
    • Abstract: What can the origins and evolutions of human language contribute to our understanding of Archaic Biblical Hebrew' It might seem strange to redirect our historical linguistic gaze toward a Middle Paleolithic horizon, circa 100,000 BCE.1 Yet core structures and dynamics involved with language's original emergence and early development persist within what has long since become our prime communicative medium. This makes perfect sense in terms of the Darwinian evolutionary mechanisms that drive descent with modification: an inevitably diachronic phenomenon. It aligns, moreover, with functional linguistic methods that approach language from the bottom-up: as an adaptive convergence of cognitive capacities and cultural ... Read More

  • Lexical Isoglosses of Archaic Hebrew: פְּלִילִים (Deut 32:31)
           and כֵּן (Judg 5:15) as Case Studies
    • Abstract: This paper starts with a short discussion on what I consider as phenomena of the most archaic stage of the linguistic development of Hebrew as attested in the corpus of the Hebrew Bible (sec. 1). In order to substantiate my view, I will concentrate on some cross-cultural and socio-linguistic aspects of the literarization process of the ancient poems (sec. 2). The main focus of the paper will be on lexicon, namely on paths for adopting unusual and archaic vocabulary into an "updated" literary version (sec. 3). Two case studies will be studied: from the perspective of cognate data in Semitic languages the lexeme (Deut 32:31) is to be related to the root p-l-l with the meaning "be cracked, parched," understood as a ...

Kutscher's A History of the Hebrew Language. Kutscher describes Archaic Biblical Hebrew as being "represented mainly by the poetry of the Pentateuch and the Early Prophets. This hardly seems surprising because poetic language tends to be archaic."1 The texts usually under discussion are Genesis 49, Exodus 15, Numbers 23–24, Deuteronomy 32, 33, Judges 5, and 2 Samuel 22 // Psalm 18. Sometimes other works like 1 Sam 2:1–10; 2 Sam 1:17–27; Habakkuk 3, Job, and certain psalms are mentioned. Kutscher's definition of Archaic Biblical Hebrew as it relates ... Read More

  • God of Heaven and Sheol: The "Unearthing" of Creation
    • Abstract: Gen 1:1–2In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.And the earth was void-and-waste, and darkness was over the face of the deep, and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters.These two majestic verses are arguably the most famous in Scripture. They bring us into a remote world, informed by an omniscient narrator inspired with secret knowledge of the origins of the cosmos. Of course, one reason for their renown is that they open both the Hebrew and Christian canonical Bibles, and thus, they have been engrained in Western religious tradition for two millennia. Yet, I submit that it is precisely their status as a traditional fixture that has made them impervious to interpretive change, despite ... Read More

  • Through the Kaleidoscope of Literary Imagery in Exodus 15: Poetics and
           Historiography in Service to Religious Exuberance
    • Abstract: The trigger for Exodus 15, the Song at the Sea, is the motif of the divine victory over the Egyptians at the Sea, but strikingly the poet utilizes other conceptions of God's destroying power in order to portray the demise of God's enemies, conceptions that contradict a watery death for the Egyptians. The poet fashions a kaleidoscope of verbal images of destruction. The agglomeration of images attests to the theological ingenuity of the poet: even though the literary images are stereotypical descriptions of divine actions, the poet weaves them together creatively to affirm and intensify divine power and triumph. The kaleidoscope of images heightens the celebratory language of victory. Far from being a cliché, the ... Read More

  • A Cognitive Poetics Approach to the Problem of Biblical Hebrew Poetic
           Lineation: Perception-Oriented Lineation of David's Lament in 2 Samuel
           1:19–27
    • Abstract: Like many portions of the Hebrew Bible that are commonly considered poetry, David's lament in 2 Samuel 1:19–27 is not traditionally written stichographically.1 That is, there is no visual difference in the medieval manuscripts between the portions of prose that precede and follow the lament and the text of the lament, both of which are written continuously on the page.2 The Masoretic accents within the text of the lament preserve an ancient tradition of its cantillation (the same system which also serves the prose surrounding the lament), but these markings cannot be systematically used to determine the ends of the poetic lines. Although the ends of poetic lines tend to correspond with major disjunctives and/or ... Read More

  • Anterior Weqatal In The Hebrew Bible And The Qumran Documents
    • Abstract: One of the most intriguing problems in the study of the Hebrew verbal system is the use of the form weqatal as an anterior tense. As is well known, weqatal usually functions as the equivalent of a yiqtol (plus the meaning inherent in the preposed "and"), indicating non-anteriority and, depending on context, a more or less marked modality. Non-anteriority also includes the function of habituality, iterativity, or durativity in a past context. This widespread non-anterior use of weqatal is regularly marked by a final stress in 1 sg. and 2 sg. m. in cases where the shape of the root, the immediate phonetic context, or other factors do not prevent this placement of the stress (weqataltí). However, there are occurrences ... Read More

  • Gemination of /R/ in Samaritan Hebrew: A Note on Phonological Diversity in
           Second Temple Period Hebrew
    • Abstract: In Biblical and Rabbinic Hebrew as we know it from medieval vocalization systems and various reading traditions, the rhotic /r/ is rarely geminated. The Tiberian vocalization attests to only about a dozen examples in which the letter is pointed with a dagesh-sign that represents morphological gemination; Junctural gemination (dəḥiq or aṯe me-raḥiq) appears in about ten additional instances.1 In the Babylonian vocalization, gemination of /r/ is even rarer.2 Similarly, the western tradition of the Palestinian branch of Rabbinic Hebrew lacks dagesh in almost completely, but some eastern manuscripts and oriental reading traditions attest to the gemination of /r/ in the derived stems, in certain noun patterns, and ...

  • On Self-Restraint and Building Fences: A Note on LXX Proverbs 28:4 and
           Rabbinic Parlance
    • Abstract: The nature of LXX Proverbs and the question of its provenance and relationship to MT Proverbs have long been foci of scholarly attention. Among the many issues that have arisen is the matter of Jewish-versus-Hellenistic origin of LXX Proverbs. In his identification, and discussion, of "Jewish" features reflected in LXX's rendering of Proverbs, J. Cook has argued that LXX Prov 28:4 is to be understood against the backdrop of rabbinic and pre-rabbinic usage, specifically, the idiom of "setting up a fence" around either the Torah or oneself.1 The present essay begins by demonstrating that rabbinic texts attest a more precise parallel to LXX's formulation than that proposed by Cook. Following this, it is shown that ... Read More

  • On the Art of Piyyut: A Reading of Yehezqel Hacohen's "אמרתי
           לאבנים" (I Said to the Stones)
    • Abstract: If scholarly opinion on the dating of the poet Yehezqel Hacohen is correct, the piyyut above was composed about one thousand years ago in the post-classical period4 ("late oriental paytanut," as Ezra Fleischer calls it).5 And yet, in my view, this ancient poem has the flavor of modern poetry. This flavor may be connected to what Fleischer wrote about the climate and nature of that period, in which "paytanut became more open, lighter, more forgiving. The strict and rather scholarly tone which characterized classical paytanut disappeared, replaced by a new, more relaxed and freely hovering tone. … At its best it occasionally shows a kind of clear and liberated flexibility."6 Furthermore, this piyyut is undoubtedly an ...

And the condensed phrases, constructed mostly of subject and object—produce the universality of the poem, the hint for the death call for all. Breadth and calmness even in the continuous sounds "a" and "u" that keep recurring a few times, also in that the recurring rhyming words are most usual words, and that the word does not interrupt the sense of immense stillness, that which any ...

  • A Construction Grammar Perspective on Negation in Hebrew

In fact, the meaning conveyed here is completely the opposite of the literal meaning. In example 1 the clause 'where I will not be', in fact means "wherever I will be."

  • The “Intended Misidentification” of the Other in the Poetry of
           Dahlia Ravikovitch
    • Abstract: From its very inception, Dahlia Ravikovitch's work is marked by the poet's fascination with the divergent and the Other. One of the first poems she translated, at the very same time she was composing her earliest, not quite mature poems in her high school years, was William Blake's "The Little Black Boy"—the monologue of a black boy who wishes to "heal" the white boy in order to become like him: "I'll shade him from the heat till he can bear / To lean in joy upon our Father's knee."1 The black boy admits his "deficiency" and yearns to correct it—but rather than by changing himself, he will achieve this through the transformation he brings upon the non-different, the white boy who is part of the majority. The one ... Read More

  • The Watchman's Stance in A. B. Yehoshua's Fiction
    • Abstract: Much has been written about the watchman in Yehoshua's iconic novella (Facing the forests), where an observation post is an obvious feature of the plot.1 Similar lookout stances mediating precariously between Yehoshua's characters and the world around them, recur strategically across Yehoshua's entire oeuvre, so that an assessment of their function can provide a valuable insight into his overall methods of composition. I will argue here that Yehoshua creates these lookout scenarios to expose the limitations of his watchmen and watchwomen. Paradoxically, instead of conveying a comfortable ability to control their horizon, Yehoshua's lookout stances test and undermine the lookout's ability to adequately respond to ... Read More

  • "As He Had Betrayed the Land, So He Betrayed His Betrothed": Erotic love,
           Nationalism, and authorship in A Guest for the Night
    • Abstract: S. Y. Agnon's second novel, A Guest for the Night was often read as dealing with a homecoming to the old home and as Agnon's farewell to East European Jewry.1 Critics highlighted the narrative of conflict and wavering between old and new by following the process of disillusion and sobering that the guest allegedly goes through during the year he spends in Szibusz. According to this interpretation, the guest's decision to return to Palestine after eleven months spent in Szibusz is an unequivocal expression of the Zionist endpoint of this process. However, Agnon's narrative technique in A Guest for the Night is much more complex than manifest actions reveal. By following the manifest level only, we end up with a ... Read More

  • Nostalgia as a Literary Device: Gabriel Preil's Diasporic Condition
    • Abstract: In one of the most famous poems of his late period, "Another Time," the Hebrew-American poet Gabriel Preil declared, "There is no escaping my time/ It is Lithuania, it is America, it is Israel. / I am a unique copy of these lands and one way or another they absorbed my weathers."1 This autobiographical and poetic statement was the result of Preil's life-long reflection on the meaning of writing in Hebrew in the diaspora. Unlike the other Hebrew modernist poets of his generation, Preil never lived in Israel. He was born in Estonia, attended a Hebrew gymnasium in the shtetl of Krakes in Kovno, and immigrated to New York with his mother in 1922.2 In the first and only monograph on his work, Yael Feldman addressed the ...

    • Abstract: Merav Nakar-Sadi's book is named for its main protagonist, Oxana.2 Oxana, in the tradition of other eponymic novels, presents an unforgettable heroine, despite the fact that she only speaks indirectly, through a letter she has left prior to her disappearance, and is only present in the words of those who tell about meeting her in the various stations of her life, or who had, at the very least, read the letter she had left. The book is composed of six monologues that tell the story from their narrators' perspectives on the events—not only abstractly, in the sense of an emotional-mental disposition, but truly physically—each character had known Oxana during a different section of Oxana's life and relates to the story ...
