Georg Heinrich August Ewald (1803-1875) was one of the nineteenth century’s foremost Biblical scholars. His great appreciation for the work of medieval Jewish scholars in Biblical exegesis, Hebrew grammar, and lexicography is evident in his work, Syntax of the Hebrew Language of the Old Testament. Ewald’s work profited much by the great advances in linguistic knowledge derived from the comparative study of the Indo-European languages, especially an extensive application of phonetic and other philological principles, bringing Syntax of the Hebrew Language of the Old Testament nearer than its predecessors to the realm of an exact science, and contributing to its status as a classic.

This book is intended to provide a quick introductory overview of the Tiberian Masoretic tradition of the Hebrew Bible and its background.

Particular prominence is given to the multi-layered nature of the Masoretic tradition. The volume contains a section describing the Tiberian reading tradition, which is essential for a correct understanding of the vocalization system.

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.
