Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Series Title: Studies in Semitic Language & Linguistics
Description:

This volume is dedicated to professor Jacob Hoftijzer on the occasion of
his sixty-fifth birthday as well as of his retirement from the chair of
"Hebrew Language and Literature, the Israelite Antiquities and Ugaritic" at
the University of Leiden.

After a preface by A. van der Heide and a bibliographical list of
Hoftijzer's publications, the volume contains 16 essays on syntactical
questions in the field of Hebrew and Aramaic. Most of these essays deal
with subjects occurring in Hoftijzer's publications. Such are the nominal
sentence, the particle 'et', questions related to clause types as well as
to word order and concord within sentences, the status and use of particles
and verbal forms. Whereas Biblical Hebrew is discussed in most of the
essays, other language forms are represented as well, esp. Mishnaic and
Modern Hebrew, Imperial Aramaic, Middle Aramaic and Classical Syriac.
