Advances in the Study of Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic by Benjamin J. Noonan is an introduction to issues of interest in the current world of Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic scholarship. A growing knowledge of the Semitic languages and the field of linguistics continues to enhance understanding of biblical Hebrew. Comprehension of these items directly affects the way we read the Hebrew Bible and is therefore invaluable for those interested in the Old Testament. This book fills a gap in the field of Biblical Hebrew linguistics and provides an accessible, comprehensive, up-to-date, and linguistically-informed investigation of the language.

  • Linguistic theories
  • Lexical semantics and lexicography
  • Verbal stems
  • Tense, mood, and aspect in the verbal system
  • Register, dialect, and code-switching
  • Dating of Biblical Hebrew texts
  • Discourse analysis
  • Teaching and learning Biblical Hebrew

Advances in the Study of Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic provides an accessible introduction for students, pastors, professors, and commentators to understand these important issues.

    Very helpful overview. For professors, scholars, and even intermediate students wishing to know what key developments have taken place and what the state of discussion is for many major issues in the study of Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic. The author also makes suggestions for further advancement of the field and gives reading suggestions at the end of each chapter, in addition to a large bibliography at the end of the book.
