Biblical Lexicography

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Section brings together those working on lexicography and lexicology of ancient biblical languages. The discussions seek to bring the theoretical to bear on the practical task of dictionary making and encourage research in the area of historical lexical analysis. The Biblical Lexicography Section is seeking proposals on relevant topics for the 2018 Annual Meeting. We will host an invited joint session with the Qumran Section on lexicographic issues pertaining to Qumran. We welcome paper proposals for two further open sessions on subjects of relevance to the lexicography and semantics of Hebrew, Greek or other biblical languages.
