Product Description

In A History of the Hebrew Language Angel Saenz Badillos provides the most comprehensive history of the Hebrew language to date. Spreading the scope of his research and story wide, Badillos gives a full scale, breathtaking comprehensive and historical analysis of the northwest Semitic sources, including the poetry and prose of the Hebrew Bible, post-exilic literature, the Dead Sea Scrolls, Medieval Rabbis and, on down to modern Israeli society.

For serious students of the Hebrew language, or for historians focused on the biblical period, this work is indispensable for understanding the contribution to language Hebrew has made. It is also critical for understanding the Hebrew mind, and how Jewish culture has developed throughout the centuries.

Publisher's Description

A History of the Hebrew Language is a comprehensive description of Hebrew from its Semitic origins and the earliest settlement of the Israelite tribes in Canaan to the present day. Professor S enz-Badillos sets Hebrew in the context of the Northwest Semitic languages and examines the origins of Hebrew and its earliest manifestations in ancient Biblical poetry, inscriptions, and prose written before the Babylonian exile. He looks at the different medieval traditions of pointing classical Biblical Hebrew texts and the characteristic features of the post-exilic language, including the Hebrew of the Dead Sea Scrolls. He gives particular attention to Rabbinic and medieval Hebrew, especially as evidenced in writings from Spain. His survey concludes with the revival of the language in this century in the form of Israeli Hebrew.
