Description: For years scholars of biblical poetry have defined parallelism as the simple correspondence of one verse, phrase, or word with another. In this study, Adele Berlin approaches biblical parallelism as a linguistic phenomenon, and as a complex interplay among all aspects of language. She examines the grammatical, lexical, semantic, phonetic, structural, and psychological aspects of parallelism.
