Lexical Studies in the Bible and Ancient Near Eastern Inscriptions: The Collected Essays of Hayim Tawil
Berkovitz, Abraham Jacob, Stuart W. Halpern and Alec Goldstein, editors

New York: Ktav, 2012 pp. 365. $39.50


Description: This book consists of four general sections. The first contains, for the first time, a complete collection of Prof. Tawilís lexicographical notes. These notes represent groundbreaking word studies in which he uncovered linguistic nuances by employing an inductive comparative Semitic methodology. The second section contains studies on the Hebrew Bible. In these articles, Prof. Tawil presents his unique and creative perspective on the study of the Hebrew Bible. These essays attest to his broad interest and mastery, ranging from studies devoted to a specific word to examinations of large methodological questions. The third section contains his work on Northwest Semitic inscriptions. These studies best demonstrate Prof. Tawilís unique contribution to the study of Aramaic idioms. The final section contains the Hebrew versions of two articles appearing in this volume.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Literature, Methods, Linguistics, Aramaic, Northwest Semitic
