Title: The Phonological Structure of the Verbal Roots in Arabic and Hebrew
Written By: B. Bachra
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=9475
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Language & Linguistics
Description:

This book contains an investigation of the co-occurrence between the
consonants in the triliteral and quadriliteral verbal roots of Arabic and
Hebrew. The consonants are grouped on the basis of Manner or of Place. Both
co-occurrence restrictions and co-occurrence preferences of consonants and
of consonant groups are described in detail. The statistical test for
pronomial proportions is used in order to determine the statistical
significance of the results. These results are compared to those of earlier
work by other authors on this subject. The findings are explained within
the framework of generative phonology. The methods used are described in
detail and the book contains a wealth of tabulated material which can be of
great use to other investigators.
