Need a Little Help from the Linguistics Nerds...

Okay all of you Hebrew linguistics nerds out there, I need a little help.  I’m putting together my reading lists for my comprehensive exams, and one of them will be on modern linguistics and biblical Hebrew.  So hit me, your best monograph recommendations, either with regard to general linguistic theory, or to the application of […]

Oh Right, Mid-Term...

I haven’t had a post in a while due to school work and editing responsibilities, so today was the first time I’ve checked in on the old blog in a few days.  I took a quick look at the graph that displays my hits per day and for some weird reason yesterday had this huge […]

Isaiah again...

Still working with Isaiah 53, trying to think through all of the text critical problems that the text presents.  Isaiah 53:2 presents a classic text critical problem: In all of the extant witnesses to the Greek tradition of Isaiah 53:2 opens with: ἀνηγγείλαμεν ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ ὡς παιδίον* which one might render roughly as “We have […]

A New BH Resource...

HT to John Hobbins for pointing out Matthew Anstey’s Hebrew Portal.  It looks to still be in production, but the bibliography alone is worth the visit.  Just getting through the whole bibliography (not the books mind you, just the list) is a daunting task…it’s that long.  I’m adding it to my bookmarks for sure, and […]

Me Read Hebrew Good...

In my continual attempt to break myself of some of my bad Hebrew habits (over reliance on Logos being the worst) I’m working on Hebrew pretty extensively this month.  Currently this is taking the form of working through Ehud Ben Zvi’s excellent workbook, Readings in Biblical Hebrew.  One of the great things about this workbook […]
