In 1961 William L. Moran published “The Hebrew Language in Its Northwest Semitic Background” (in The Bible and the Ancient Near East: Essays in Honor of William Foxwell Albright) in which he presented a state-of-the-art description of the linguistic milieu out of which Biblical Hebrew developed. In the light of the significant advances in the study of Biblical Hebrew and Northwest Semitic in the past four decades, the Institute for Advanced Studies of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem convened an international research group during the 2001-2002 academic year on the topic “Biblical Hebrew in Its Northwest Semitic Setting: Typological and Historical Perspectives.”
The present volume presents the fruits of the year long collaboration. The articles are based on the lectures that were given during the year. A wide array of subjects are discussed, all of which have implications for the study of Biblical Hebrew and Northwest Semitic.
