Re: Yahweh Adonai

https://www.ahdictionary.com/word/search.html?q=cognate Read and learn what "cognate" means when referring to languages. These cannot be cognates because they are not descended from related languages. I work with eight different languages, so I know a little something about cognates.

Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

Just because PIE is theoretical doesn't make it fictional. All language comes from somewhere. IE (Indo-European) is not fictional. I did graduate work in Romance languages (philology) working with Latin, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. All of these are IE. Hebrew is NOT European! Even modern Hebrew...

Re: Yahweh Adonai

Lee כתב : he cognate of פת is ψωμός and the root is ψάω(psáō) 'crumble' the poetry rhymes the word with πηδάω 'leap' ( of the heart, to leap, to pass over). There are no Greek-Hebrew or Hebrew-Greek cognates, because they are not in the same language family. Latin pater and Greek πατηρ are cognates ...

Re: Yahweh Adonai

And no, Adonai אדני is not related in any way to Adonis. Not linguistically and certainly not theologically.

Re: Yahweh Adonai

Lee, I should remind you that Greek and Hebrew are not related languages. Hebrew is Semitic, while Greek is Indo-European. Hebrew and Aramaic are relatives, close cousins. Arabic is also related to Hebrew. Greek is not related. There are some some borrowings from Hebrew in Greek, e.g., πασχα, σαββατ...

Re: Yahweh Adonai

Lee, the posts you've presented have been interesting, but to me they are more coincidental than convincing. I am not sure how they advance or help our understanding of Biblical Hebrew. It appears on the surface at least that you are attempting to show that the Hebrews worshiped the same gods as the...

Re: Patterns of noun derivation

Very helpful, Karl. Aren't there also some nouns that begin with a mem prefix derived from verbs? E.g., מושב from ישב, Psa. 1:1. Is there a rule that applies there?

More Thoughts on Hebrew Immersion and Other Communicative Learning Approaches

Karl, since we are no longer specifically talking about the blog, I decided to start a new thread, focussing on the immersion topic and related approaches to teaching and learning BH. You wrote: “First two years”? My goal is to have students start reading Tanakh within the first two months. Well, I ...

Re: My New Biblical Studies Blog

As for the pronunciation to use in the class, you go with what you have. As we know, the Tiberian is ancient, we just don't know how ancient. You can of course advise the class of these uncertainties. But this is a common issue in ancient language studies.
