Grammar of Samaritan Hebrew: Based on the Recitation of the Law in Comparison with the Tiberian and Other Jewish Traditions
The Hebrew language has developed into several dialects, each ethnic community having its own unique tradition of pronunciation. In this detailed analysis of Samaritan Hebrew, Zeev Ben-Hayyim explores whether the Samaritans carefully maintained their language in the same way they guarded other traditions. Scholars have used Samaritan texts such as the Samaritan Pentateuch to discern the original text of the Hebrew Pentateuch. This detailed analysis of Samaritan Hebrew includes summaries of major aspects of its grammar—phonology, morphology, nouns, particles, syntax, and more.
Zeev Ben-Hayyim (1907–2013) was a Hebrew linguist and former president of the Academy of the Hebrew Language. He was the editor of Leshoneynu, the official journal of the Academy of the Hebrew Language.
