From the preface: A syntactic analysis requires a good deal of specialized terminology, some familiar, some borrowed, and some invented for those occasions when no existing term quite works. Furthermore, authors and syntacticians each have their own idea — usually very specific! — of what is meant by each label they employ, even when using established terminology. This glossary, then, provides definitions of the various terms and labels employed in The Hebrew Bible: Andersen-Forbes Phrase Marker Analysis. The arrangement of entries is not alphabetic. Rather, the glossary proceeds according to a systematic plan: Foundational terminology is presented up front instead of being scattered throughout, and later definitions generally build upon earlier ones. For this reason, it is possible to read the glossary from beginning to end and gain a sense of our overall approach to syntax.
