A vivid commentary on Jewish survival and Jewish speech communities that will be enjoyed by the general reader, and is essential reading for students and researchers interested in the study of Middle Eastern languages, Jewish studies, and sociolinguistics.
This book is a cross-linguistic investigation of resumptive pronouns and related
resumption phenomena. The author proposes a new theory of resumption based
on the use of a resource logic for semantic composition and the typologically
robust observation that resumptive pronouns are ordinary pronouns in their
morphological and lexical properties.
