In this essential contribution to the study of Aramaisms in the Bible, noted linguist E. Kautzsch provides a thorough introduction to the subject. Since Aramaisms are not overly abundant in the Bible, Kautzsch has the space to dedicate a significant analysis. After introducing the subject, he considers Aramaisms that are beyond doubt. These are arranged alphabetically and each is discussed in a brief paragraph that provides the citation and translation. This is followed by a summary overview of the usages and where in the Bible they are found. Results of the study are presented in narrative form. His study concludes with a collection of dubious Aramaisms and those that are sometimes developed from other Aramaisms. For linguists interested in how Aramaic influenced biblical Hebrew, as understood at the turn of the twentieth century, this little book will be of great value.

Emil Friedrich Kautzsch (1841-1910) received his education at the University of Leipzig where he later was appointed to the faculty. He eventually received professorships at the Universities of Basel, Tübingen, and finally, Halle. Kautzsch was also notable in that he was one of the founders of the German Palestine Exploration Society. He published other works on Semitic grammar but is best known for his edition of Gesenius’ Grammar.

The Qatal//Yiqtol (Yiqtol//Qatal) Verbal Sequence in Semitic Couplets

A Case Study in Systemic Functional Grammar with Applications on the Hebrew Psalter and Ugaritic Poetry
ISBN: 978-1-59333-958-6
The book investigates the qatal//yiqtol (yiqtol//qatal) verbal sequence, previously known as ‘tense shifting’, as found in couplets of the Hebrew Psalter, attempting an innovatory explanation by means of M.A.K. Halliday’s Systemic Theory. This study argues that qatal and yiqtol verbal forms, when part of the qatal//yiqtol verbal sequence in Psalms' poetic couplets, can be used primarily for aesthetic reasons, with no individual reference to time or aspect. Arguably, the Systemic Functional Grammar analysis of lexicogrammar can provide a comprehensive interpretation of form and function and an integrated approach to phonetics, morphology and syntax.
