Requirements for Participation

Linguistics and Biblical Hebrew


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Linguistics and Biblical Hebrew Section solicits papers for two sessions. The first session will be non-thematic; any papers that address the study of Biblical Hebrew using a well-articulated linguistic method are welcome, and those that apply linguistics to particular Biblical Hebrew texts are especially encouraged. The second session will be topical, focusing on language variation and text-based studies of the differentiation of idiolect, dialect, and discourse pragmatics. Papers grounded in sound linguistic theory and applied to a set of texts have the most potential to further our understanding and are therefore preferred. Please submit your abstract online. Submitters who have not presented a paper previously in the Linguistics and Biblical Hebrew Section are asked also to include the full paper.
