The Indo-European Controversy: Facts and Fallacies in Historical Linguistics

By Asya Pereltsvaig and Martin W. Lewis

This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."


Book Information

   

Title: Parenthesis in Biblical Hebrew
Written By: Tamar Zewi
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=18&pid=28883
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Languages and Linguistics, Vol. 50
Description:

Parenthesis in Biblical Hebrew has never been examined as an autonomous
independent topic. Scholarly references to parenthetical units or
parenthetical techniques in Biblical Hebrew are usually scarce and short or
entirely absent. This monograph fills this gap by offering a comprehensive
description of parenthetical clauses and parenthetical words and phrases in
Biblical Hebrew, through integration of several research disciplines and
scholarly approaches: linguistics, discourse studies, text linguistics,
textual philology, comparative Semitics, Bible translations, and
literature. Special attention is paid to the analysis of the linguistic
aspects of parenthesis, the identification and definition of which are
particularly elusive.
