Biblia Hebraica transcripta

The Biblia Hebraica transcripta (BHt) is a linguistically informed analysis of the Hebrew Bible based on the work of Wolfgang Richter as carried forward by Christian Riepl and Johann Peter Rechenmacher. Uniquely, the BHt is a transcription of the Hebrew Bible (Leningradensis) that represents the text in a transliterated form. The Logos Bible Software version also encodes the Hebrew characters as a separate interlinear line for each word. This implementation of the BHt includes data from the BHt word level analysis. It provides morpho-syntactic information of each word but also includes information about word formation and endings unavailable in any other database of the Hebrew Bible.

Richter’s analysis is best understood in light of three underlying concepts. The first concept involves the notion that “identification of grammatical categories on account of the distribution properties of items [should be] at the same level of description.” In other words, analysis having to do with the word level should be encoded at the word level, clause level at clause level, and so forth. Second is Richter’s integration of valency theory into his analysis. Third is his “distinction between surface level and deep structure of a clause” (Rechenmacher and van der Merwe 2005, 79).
