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."

Description:

This volume contains 15 contributions presented at a symposium on the
Hebrew of the Dead Sea Scrolls & Ben Sira, held in Strasbourg on May 29 and
30, 2006. The papers address linguistic and philological issues. They seek
to relate the Hebrew texts of the Hellenistic period to earlier and later
traditions. Among the authors are some of the most eminent Hebraists of our
period as well as some younger scholars. The papers throw new light on the
interpretation of the Qumran Scrolls, of the Apocrypha and of the Hebrew Bible.
