The Pronunciation of Biblical Hebrew - Prof. Geoffrey Khan

Another offshoot of the major project on the grammar of Biblical Hebrew is the preparation of a volume that surveys the various pronunciations of Biblical Hebrew through the ages. The starting point is the reconstruction of the Tiberian reading tradition, which formed the basis of standard Masoretic vocalization signs of the Hebrew Bible. The volume then describes the other diverse traditions that are reflected by ancient and medieval manuscripts and modern oral sources.


Research and teaching in the field of Jewish Studies take place in a variety of faculties and departments across the University of Cambridge. The Cambridge Forum for Jewish Studies is an initiative whose objective is to join up this activity and communicate the range of expertise and wealth of research in the field that currently exists in the university. The Forum meets once a term to exchange information and ideas. It is hoped that it will encourage wider participation and a variety of perspectives.
