Eng, Milton

Series Information
Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies, 464


Description: This study is an investigation into the lexical meanings of Hebrew terms for the human life cycle in the Old Testament. The investigation differs from previous studies in that the terms are studied from the perspective of a specific semantic domain (age) and not in isolation from each other. In addition, other modern linguistic approaches are applied, including syntagmatic and paradigmatic analysis.

Subjects: Methods, Linguistics, Hebrew
