This collection of papers in Hebrew and Semitic linguistics is formed by research into the history of biblical Hebrew. Individual authors deal with details, yet the introduction, entitled “On the History and Structure of Hebrew” (especially written for this publication), fits them into the general frame. Topics in Hebrew and Semitic Linguistics will convey to scholars something more than the mere sum of the various publications.
In the Logos edition of Topics in Hebrew and Semitic Linguistics, you get easy access to Scripture texts and to a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and Passage Guides, Word Studies, and a wealth of other tools, make this important work more available than ever for Hebrew study.
