Requirements for Participation

Biblical Hebrew Language and Linguistics


Program Unit Type: Consultation
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The “Biblical Hebrew Language and Linguistics” unit is a new consultation in 2020. We invite paper proposals for one open session on any topic pertaining to Biblical Hebrew, and for two thematic sessions. Thematic Session 1: “Linguistic Analysis of Biblical Hebrew and Its Impact on Interpretation.” Many interpretive matters in the Hebrew Scriptures hinge on linguistic analyses of various sorts. We welcome papers that investigate the interpretive implications of such analyses and exemplify the interrelation between biblical interpretation and linguistic analysis of Biblical Hebrew. Thematic Session 2: “The Study of Biblical Hebrew in Light of the World’s Languages.” Typological approaches to the study of languages have shed significant light on Biblical Hebrew. We welcome papers that investigate features of Biblical Hebrew within a contemporary typological framework.
