Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

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.
