Title: Tiberian Hebrew Phonology
Written By: Andries W. Coetzee
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=29757
Series Title: Studia Semitica Neerlandica, 38
Description:

This work investigates the phonology of Tiberian Hebrew words ending on
consonant clusters on the underlying level. This is achieved by first
evaluating how these words were treated by traditional pre-generative
grammars of Hebrew. This section of the study serves primarily to indicate
the shortcomings in these explanations, and to indicate thereby the need
for a generative study of these words. Thereafter the treatment of these
words in terms of traditional generative phonology is discussed. In this
section the explanations offered by two noted scholars in the field, Malone
and Garr, are evaluated and compared. It is argued that these explanations
are by far more adequate than the pre-generative explanations, but that
they still miss some substantial linguistic generalisations. Finally, a
proposal is offered for how these words can be treated in a non-linear
approach to generative phonology.
In this section the focus falls primarily on syllabification and how the
site of vowel epenthesis is predicted by this process. The contribution of
this study is twofold: On the one hand it offers the first detailed
analysis of an aspect of the standard textbook “Tiberian Hebrew Phonology”
of Malone (1993). On the other hand, it opens up the study of Tiberian
Hebrew phonology to more recent developments in phonological theory.
