A Systematic Glossary to the Andersen-Forbes Analysis of the Hebrew Bible

by ,

4 publishers 2006–2009


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 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.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
