Colloquia of the International Syriac Language Project.
The essays collected in this volume probe various linguistic problems, analyze certain lexicographical methods, evaluate selected lexical tools currently available, and set forth descriptions and/or proposals for forthcoming lexical projects. The papers are organized into three groups, depending on their primary language orientation. The first group focuses on selected areas of lexicography for texts written in Classical Syriac. The second group deals with certain areas of semantics and lexicography for Biblical Hebrew. The third group treats aspects of lexical analysis for the Greek New Testament. The common thread that ties the essays together is a focus on lexicography.
