    Abstract: The subject of this volume being offered to scholars of the Hebrew language and its devotees is spoken Hebrew. Its nucleus is a meeting of scholars that occurred in February 2000 at Emory University in Atlanta (Georgia, USA). Papers were delivered by team members of The Corpus of Spoken Israeli Hebrew (CoSIH) and other scholars invited for this purpose, and questions were discussed pertaining to the compilation and design of the corpus. At the initiative of Yair Hoffman, editor of the Teuda series, other scholars engaged in the research of the Hebrew language were asked to contribute from their research to this volume. These articles, to a large extent, supplement the writings of the CoSIH workshop seminar, because they show from various and diverse aspects the pressing need for compiling a corpus of spoken Israeli Hebrew.
