  • Regularization in the Crystallization of Modern Hebrew: The Case of
           Counterfactual Conditionals

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Regularization processes involve the reduction of linguistic diversity through the elimination of variants. It occurs naturally in individuals' language in language acquisition and learning. Regularization processes happen in all languages and periods, but there are situations where regularization brings about linguistic changes. These changes can occur in social situations where learners comprise a large portion of the language community.2 This was the case during the early development of Modern Hebrew (MH).The Hebrew language is a unique case of a language that stopped being used as a vernacular and did not have native speakers for about 1700 years. During these years, Hebrew was used as a part of diglossia and ... Read More

           Meaning

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper deals with a process in Modern Hebrew (MH), whereby morphological patterns that were not associated with particular semantic profiles in earlier periods of the language developed particular meanings in the modern language. The test case examined here is quadriliteral root patterns that existed in the early layers of Hebrew but were not associated, or were only weakly associated, with a specific meaning, but which in MH, the study found, acquired typical meanings that are evident in nearly all cases, subject to certain derivational constraints. The paper examines the constraints on the development of the pattern's particular meaning, and on the association of this meaning with individual verbs coined in ... Read More

      Abstract: The tenth-century Iraqi thinkers known as Ikhwān al-Ṣafā', or the Brethren of Purity (also known as the Sincere Brothers), include the story of Saul and the medium of Endor in their Epistle 52 on magic.2 This epistle is part of their larger work, Rasā'il Ikhwān al-Ṣafā' (The Epistles of the Brethren of Purity), an encyclopedic work dedicated to the different sciences and fields of knowledge.3 Although each epistle is devoted to one topic – arithmetic, geometry, astronomy, etc., – the epistles all ultimately deal with the salvation of the soul – its detachment from the material world and return to the spiritual realm, the abode of its eternal happiness. Throughout the epistles, the anonymous authors prod the reader ... Read More

  • On Root Modality Predicates and their Radical Clausal Desires

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The desiderative verb 'want' in Modern Hebrew demonstrates a peculiarity among attitude ascription verbs. can embed both finite clause, formed by the clitic complementizer and future inflected embedded verb,1 and infinite clauses; however, when the matrix verb's subject co-refers with the embedded subject (1a)-(1b), the complement clause is obligatorily infinitival (1b). The desiderative 'want', as also the modal 'need', which both have root modality interpretations,2 are among very few predicates in Modern Hebrew which exhibit systematic infinitive selection with coreferential reading,3 along with predicates such as 'must', 'can', 'prefer' and 'ready/will'. Co-reference with finite embedded clauses is ... Read More

  • Saul and the "Witch of Endor"

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Philistines assembled their army and gathered at Shunam. Fearing the large army of the Philistines, Saul turned to God for guidance hoping to receive an encouraging message, but the Lord has failed to answer him, whether by dreams, by the Urim, or through prophets. This is not the first time that Saul inquired of the Lord. In 1 Samuel 14:36–37 we read that Saul asked the Lord: "Shall I go down after the Philistines' Wilt thou give them into the hand of Israel' But he did not answer him that day" (1 Sam. 14:36–37). Refusal to answer was understood to be a negative answer. Similarly, it is reported in Egyptian text that Ah-Mose I, a pharaoh who acted as a deity, was asked for a verdict, but he continued to be ... Read More

  • The Formation and the Cognitive Knowledge of Literary Languages: The Case
           of Hebrew and Aramaic in the Middle Ages

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Jewish legal and exegetical scholarship of the Middle Ages centered around the corpus of classical texts in Hebrew and Aramaic, from the Bible to the Tannaitic and Amoraitic literature. Most of the scholars of the period even wrote in Hebrew – or, in the case of commentary on the Babylonian Talmud, in a language similar to that of the Babylonian Talmud itself, which combines Hebrew and Aramaic.1 After the Aramaic seized from being the spoken language in most of the Jewish diaspora, very few works were written entirely in it,2 with the exception of the Targum project, which was completed during this period.3 The situation changed with the advent of the Jewish Kabbalah, whose main text, the Zohar,4 was written ...

      Abstract: After centuries in which Hebrew was largely a literary and liturgical langauge, in the late 19th century and in the first decades of the 20th century it resumed its function as a spoken language in everyday use. In October 2017, Prof. Edit Doron initiated an ERC research project at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem seeking to explore this dramatic historical process from a theoretical linguistic point of view. Titled "The Emergence of Modern Hebrew as a Case-Study of Linguistic Discontinuity," the project sought to trace the linguistic trajectory of Modern Hebrew during its early years, while also undertaking a ...

  • Mirror Images: The Role of Egypt in Ezek 29–32

      Abstract: In Ezek 29, the prophet addresses Egypt's doom and restoration in a manner that has prompted scholarly attention. For example, Walther Zimmerli claims that a "most surprising statement" faces the reader in Egypt's restoration.1 Similarly, Daniel Block states that the introduction of this restoration in Ezek 29:13 "catches the reader by surprise, but it is intentional …."2 In this article, I analyze the chapter from a rhetorical perspective.3 Other scholars have conducted rhetorical analyses of Ezekiel and of Ezekiel's oracles against Egypt.4 While these studies show the progress that has been made in this area of research, they seek to explain either the literary cohesion of Ezek 29–32 or a different component of ...

      Abstract: Chapter fourteen of the book of Exodus tells us about the miracle of the Israelites crossing the Red Sea. This chapter ends with a sequence of narrative forms (wayyiqtol) in which the narrator informs us of the chain of events that constitute the main line of the story. In verse one of the next chapter, the narrator stops this line of events by using a different construction, namely the juxtaposition of the adverb 'ˀaz' and yiqtol form:And the LORD said unto Moses: 'Stretch out thy hand over the sea, that the waters may come back upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.': And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its strength when the morning appeared… ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On the death of Elizabeth Tudor in 1603, King James VI of Scotland (1566–1625) ascended the throne of England and became James I. It was a personal triumph for the "cradle" king, who at thirteen-months' old had been crowned king of Scotland in 1567 and whose ambition it had been to inherit the English crown from Elizabeth I. The King James Version (KJV), also known as the Authorized Version, was commissioned by James in 1604, shortly after his accession to the English throne, and was first published in 1611. Despite its initial lukewarm reception, the KJV eventually became the English people's Bible, and James became, and still is, well-known for this Bible translation.A generally lesser-known aspect of James's ...

      Abstract: Birds have always captivated the human imagination. Poets have always been enchanted by these small creatures, their songs, and their ability to fly – as well as by their simultaneous strength and vulnerability. Thus, birds have come to symbolize the deepest emotions of love, lust, lost love, yearning, and the sublime feeling when admiring the wonders of nature. Petrarch, John Milton, John Keats, William Wordsworth, Hartley Coleridge, and many others have written odes and poems in praise of nightingales and other songbirds. Russian poets such as Lermontov, Block and Akhmatova refer to birds as symbols of freedom from existing tyranny.The Hebrew poet Leah Goldberg was raised in this rich European poetic tradition. ...

  • Defending the Indefensible: Joanna Hoyt and Repentance in Judges

      Abstract: The background story of this article is as follows. A defining idiosyncratic feature of the biblical book of Judges is its cyclical pattern. Starting in chapter 3, the events it reports go in circles: Israel commits evil in Yhwh's sight; Yhwh punishes them with foreign oppression; the people "cry to Yhwh" (except in the last, sixth cycle that begins in Judges 13); the deity appoints a deliverer who assumes the mantle of a judge; the oppressor is defeated, and Israel is liberated (again, except for the last cycle). For a long time, modern commentators have characterized "crying to Yhwh," usually with minimal discussion or none whatsoever, as Israel's repentance and the appointment of a deliverer as divine response ...

      Abstract: In compelling essays that range from literary meditations to pedagogical prescriptions, from literary analysis to personal memoir, What We Talk About When We Talk About Hebrew (And What It Means to Americans) presents itself as the fruit of a new discursive community, one that is unique to Americans in the field of Hebrew studies. This volume brings together a group of contemporary scholars, novelists, and poets to speak to the question of how to re-engage Americans – children as well as college students, synagogue goers as well as secularists – in the study of Hebrew.What We Talk About is an invitation to Americans, like myself, who have straddled countries and languages, have found themselves teaching materials ...

      Abstract: In recent scholarship on , a general consensus that is not the same in meaning as English "love" has emerged, but there is substantial disagreement on what precisely the nature of the semantic difference between and "love" is. Several different perspectives have been applied to the problem.Early studies on placed an emphasis on Ancient Near Eastern contexts to explain the difference in meaning. William Moran noted specific semantic peculiarities of love () in Deuteronomy: 1) It can be commanded, and since "love" cannot be commanded, the meaning of could not be "love." 2) It is to be defined in terms of loyalty, service, and obedience. 3) It appears in international political contexts and covenantal contexts.

      Abstract: Form criticism has provided the foundation for Psalms scholarship for a century. Yet in recent decades, and especially since the groundbreaking work of Gerald Wilson, canonical criticism has become increasingly important, though scholars have applied different names to the enterprise.1 Two recent monographs share the admirable goal of addressing persistent methodological problems within these two modes of inquiry. Simon Chi-Chung Cheung provides a fresh look at the genre of the wisdom psalms, and Michael Snearly seeks to advance canonical criticism through an analysis of Book V of the Psalter. Together, these projects illuminate the shape of Psalms scholarship today. They also underscore the continuing challenges ... Read More

      Abstract: The encounter between Saul and the medium of Endor in 1 Samuel 28:4-24 plays a pivotal role in the Saul-David cycle. Saul, desperate for divine guidance before an immanent battle with the Philistines, fails to receive a response from God through any of the traditional, sanctioned means. Lacking any other options, he conceals his identity and goes out under the cover of night to seek an who can summon the spirit of Samuel for him (ironically just after he had expelled all and from the land). What follows is the one account in the Hebrew Bible of an exchange between the living and the ... Read More

  • Uncovering the Dead, Dethroning the King: Divine Embodiment in 1 Samuel
           28:14

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: 1 Samuel 28 conveys one of the most detailed yet overlooked descriptions in the Hebrew Bible of the appearance of a divine entity.1 Though Saul had banished mediums and necromancers from the land (1 Sam 28:3), this chapter reports that he turned to a 'medium' hoping to receive oracular guidance prior to an imminent battle. Saul asks the medium to make the ghost of Samuel appear, whom then provides Saul with an oracle.2 Perhaps to prove that she has been successful in raising the ghost, the medium describes the ghostly Samuel's appearance to Saul. This article will examine the intersection of the ghost of Samuel's divine embodiment and material culture. We will further explore how the ghost's mien was adapted ... Read More

  • Too Much in the Sun: Intentional Ambiguity in the Samson Narrative

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is threefold. First, it aims to expose an unnoticed case of wordplay in the Samson narrative in Judges 13. Second, it argues that the play on words is demonstrably intentional, and constitutes a double entendre.1 Third, it demonstrates the literary and ideological value of the systematic ambiguity in the story of Samson's miraculous conception. While this paper focuses on one passage from the biblical Samson narrative (Judg 13:13–14), a narrative notorious for its use of wordplay,2 the technique employed to assess its intentionality may be applicable elsewhere as well.Judg 13:13–14 presents the words spoken by a messenger of YHWH to Manoah in the presence of his wife. According to MT,3 the ... Read More

           Modern Hebrew Literature

      Abstract: The extraordinary biblical story of the dramatic encounter between Saul and the anonymous Medium of Endor (I Sam 28:3–25),1 who raises the spirits of the dead, has inspired the imagination of many poets, writers, playwrights, and painters.The contrast between the high moral qualities of the Medium of Endor in the biblical story, and her being one of the witches whom Saul had commanded to obliterate, aroused the curiosity of many writers and artists. In addition to it, also her complex character aroused curiosity.2Examining a variety of works from Modern Hebrew literature shows that the various writers did not consider the Medium who dealt with "forbidden" magic, a negative figure. The woman considered in the Bible ... Read More

  • On Taming Jewish Literature's Provocations and Subversions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Omri Asscher's first book is surely one of the most interesting and critically consequential studies of Israeli literary culture to appear in the last few years, especially concerning its influence and reception abroad. Asscher is fascinated by the nature of the bond formed between the Jewish diaspora and its symbolic homeland through the ideological proclivities of the practices of both translation and the production of literary texts, its deceptions and some would argue, moral failures. Though Asscher writes about these and related issues with impressive depth and nuance throughout, the crude manipulation of so many literary narratives over the decades makes one wonder why the phenomenon has gone almost remarked ...

  • Beyond Conflict: The Non-Adversarial Aspect of Yitzhak Averbuch Orpaz's
           Prose Fiction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Commencing in the 1950s, Itzhak Averbuch Orpaz's writing was, somewhat, detached from the stylistic, generic, and social-political mode of other writers of his generation.1 Orpaz, who began publishing his work a decade after authors of his "biological" generation – S. Yizhar, Binyamin Tamuz, Aharon Meged, and Moshe Shamir2 – strayed in his writing from the dictates of socialist realism prevalent in these writers' work. Consequently, Orpaz is customarily associated with the later, 1960s literary generation, the "Statehood Generation,"3 which included authors, such as Amos Oz and A. B. Yehoshua, whose writing, like Orpaz's, has often been described as fantastic and allegorical.4Literary criticism focused mainly on ... Read More

  • Hebrew Words in the Arabic Literary Works of the Author Shokeya Mansour:
           Influence of the Hebrew Language or Protest of the Hebrification of Arabic
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When two peoples encounter each other as a result of proximity, trade, or occupation, a situation of linguistic influence arises. In the case under discussion, Hebrew and Arabic are languages that have come into contact with each other over the course of history. In situations where two language systems encounter and interact with each other, a mutual influence of language categories arises. According to Weinrich, languages in contact exhibit mixing in terms of vocabulary, phonetics, and syntax. This mixing usually occurs when a bilingual speaker employs words from the donor language in the recipient language or identifies a phoneme from the secondary system with a phoneme from the primary system, i.e., the native ...

  • "There a Damp Sky Thunders its Cough": On Two New Literary Monographs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: When I first read Karen Grumberg's manuscript, images of armed men marching in the streets of an American town chanting anti-Semitic slogans and wearing swastikas featured on TV screens and in the daily newspapers. Back then, it seemed impossible to separate the terror resulting from the reemergence of a dark past – which, as Grumberg points out, is one of the prominent characteristics of the gothic – from her discussion of the gothic elements figuring in modern Hebrew writing. Little did I know that when I would read it again for this review, I would be thinking about Grumberg's argument on the gothic with a very different set of images associated with the terror of the past. Similarly, Sunny Yudkoff's book gains ... Read More

  • What Does Modern Hebrew Continue' The Case of the Presentatives
           [inline-graphic 01] and [inline-graphic 02]

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The goal of the study is to show that recognizing and understanding the linguistic development of Hebrew during the Interim period, the period in which the Hebrew was not a spoken language,2 is crucial to understanding the process of crystallization of Modern Hebrew. In this process the traditional liturgical and literary language was transformed into a modern tongue, used by a newly-created speech community for all its communication needs. The main claim of this article is that when examining whether any linguistic phenomenon in Modern Hebrew is new or continues the previous periods – the Interim period should not be ignored. Examining the origins of the phenomenon only in Classical Hebrew, i.e., Biblical and ... Read More

  • T'MIDI'UT: The Conceptual Prism Through Which Ze'ev Wolf of Zhitomir Read
           the Torah

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Unlike many of the students of the Great Maggid, Dov Baer of Mezheretz, who went on to lead Hasidic communities in Eastern Europe, Ze'ev Wolf of the Ukranian city, Zhitomir, never established a court to serve as a leader (rebbe) of an emerging Hasidic community. The sage, who died in 1800 is rather known as the author of Or haMe'ir (Illuminating Light).1 That homiletical commentary on the Torah focuses on certain core-conceptions which are reiterated throughout the work and which comprise the prism through which the commentator and preacher read the Torah. Those conceptual statements comprise a strong ideological position which, while having roots in kabbalistic and in earlier Hasidic thought, might also be seen to ... Read More
