The Jewish Neo-Aramaic Dialect of Betanure (Pro...
83,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Jewish Neo-Aramaic dialect of Betanure, which has hitherto remained unattested, is among the rarest and most seriously endangered varieties of Aramaic spoken at the present time. One of the most archaizing Jewish Neo-Aramaic varieties and a member of the Lishana Deni dialect cluster of northernmost Iraq, the dialect is currently spoken in Israel by no more than three dozen elderly people, of whom only a small minority are proficient speakers. The grammatical description of the dialect is synchronic, but it includes etymological and historical comments as well as several paragraphs dealing with diachronic processes. The large and variegated corpus of texts, based on narratives furnished by the last two superb speakers of the dialect, comprises, inter alia, descriptions of the village of Betanure and its history, the fauna and flora of the region, agriculture and other occupations of the Jewish villagers, customs and traditions, legends, folktales, anecdotes and amusing stories. The glossary is extensively etymological and offers much comparative data drawn from numerous Neo-Aramaic varieties, apart from recourse to Classical Aramaic lexical data.

Reading Modern Hebrew Poetry and Prose
49,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is a collection of articles surrounding Modern Hebrew Literature. It includes articles about the prose fiction of S.Y. Agnon, who is Modern Hebrew Literature's only Nobel Laureate, as well as a piece discussing the work of the internationally acclaimed Hebrew writer A.B. Yehoshua. Most of the articles were published in various academic periodicals. Lev Hakak guides us with passion and depth on a rich and exciting journey into worlds created by prominent Hebrew authors. These worlds depict Jewish life in Europe, Near Eastern countries and Israel. It begins in medieval times in Spain and ends in contemporary Israel. We meet a medieval Hebrew poet whose love for Israel was the leading spark in his life, and a Rabbi who strove to touch the souls of his readers through sharing folktales. We meet a man and a woman undergoing a marriage crisis, a young man who gives up love because of the dominating older generation, a criminal who turns to faith on his way to execution, and more. The book also provides a little glimpse into Israeli movies and is also a literary voyage into the wounded souls of Holocaust survivors and others who converged to form the new nation-state on ancient soil.
