Abstract

Biblical Hebrew grammars usually treat extensively standard syntactic constructions, which are used on a regular basis and form the essence of Biblical Hebrew syntax, e.g. genitive phrases, nominal and verbal clauses, relative clauses, interrogative clauses, circumstantial clauses, various adverbial clauses, conditional sentences, etc. This lecture will focus on Biblical Hebrew constructions that do not fully fit any of the conventional syntactic classifications and share some properties of more than one construction. Such constructions, which usually initially reflect syntactic fluctuation, may sometimes be subject to reanalysis and can occasionally emerge into new constructions which deserve their own independent treatment within the same language phase or in later phases.
