ABOUT THIS BOOK
A philologically robust approach to the history of ancient Hebrew
In this book the authors work toward constructing an approach to the history of ancient Hebrew that overcomes the chasm of academic specialization. The authors illustrate how cross-textual variable analysis and variation analysis advance research on Biblical Hebrew and correct theories based on extra-linguistic assumptions, intuitions, and ideologies by focusing on variation of forms/uses in the Masoretic text and variation between the Masoretic text and other textual traditions.
- A unique approach that examines the nature of the sources and the description of their language together
- Extensive bibliography for further research
- Tables of linguistic variables and parallels
