Finding that there are no known comparisons between formal Arabic and colloquial Lebanese Syrian Arabic, the author, Raphael Nakhla Al-Yasou`y sets himself to the task. Starting with a comparison between the aforementioned dialects, the author moves to an analysis of the colloquial dialect. What he finds is a number of words, phrases, and expressions that do not belong to Arabic, yet are unknowingly accepted as such, and used as part of the local dialect. In actuality, these inserts are from a variety of other languages that include Persian, French, Italian, Greek, and Hebrew. This detailed product provides a multitude of examples and a step-by-step outline of the researcher’s investigation of assimilated foreign words.

    Verbs of Leading in the Hebrew Bible

    ISBN: 978-1-61143-925-0
    Authors of the Hebrew Bible had at least 17 different verbs which they could use to represent “leading” or “guiding” in the Hebrew Bible. What are these “verbs of leading” and how are they related to one another? Why did an author choose the particular “leading” verb he chose in a particular context? Every occurrence of a verb of leading in the Hebrew Bible is examined through the lens of semantic-role theory by assigning roles to each of the phrases typically used with the verbs. This study resolves some problem passages and supplements traditional lexicographical research.
