Here is a paper I published in the scientific periodical Ancient Near Eastern Studies.

This paper is about linguistics of Biblical Hebrew. More specifically, it discusses the Andersen–Forbes system which is at the basis of a digital grammatical database of the Hebrew Bible. In this article, I demonstrate that many of their linguistic concepts (especially on syntax) are problematic on more than one account.

If you are interested in grammar, historical linguistics and morphosyntactical taxonomy, this article is for you! 😉
