Description: Van der Vorm-Croughs focuses this translation study on the processes leading to pluses and minuses including linguistic and stylistic aspects (i.e., cases in which elements have been added or omitted for the sake of a proper use of the Greek language), literary aspects (additions and omissions meant to embellish the Greek text), translation technical aspects (e.g., the avoidance of redundancy), and contextual and intertextual exegesis and harmonization. This work also covers the relation between the Greek Isaiah and its possible Hebrew Vorlage to try to determine which pluses and minuses may have been the result of the translatorís use of a different Hebrew text.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Prophetic Literature, Isaiah, Septuagint, Literature, Methods, Linguistics, Literary Approaches
