Rev. Sue Groom has a degree in Applied Linguistics, an M. Phil in Computer Speech and Language Processing and an MA in Aspects of Biblical Interpretation. Linguistic Analysis of Biblical Hebrew is based on her M.Phil: 'Sources for the Investigation of Meaning in the Hebrew Bible'. [Publisher] Many linguistic tools and methodsare applied to biblical texts in orderto gain meaning from them. Suchapplications do not always takeinto account the perspective of theinvestigators the presuppositions ofthe method used and the nature ofthe material to which it is applied.These are all factors that influencethe meaning obtained from the text.Sue Groom takes us through thepitfalls and limitations of the variousmethods available and considerstextual transmission diachronicand dialectical variation and theimpact these have on the relationshipbetween reader author and text.Combining a critical account of longestablishedapproaches to Hebrewmeanings with a lucid introductionto newer and more recent methodssuch as lexical semantics and textlinguisticsthis illuminating read willbe of interest to those who havepreviously studied Hebrew as well asthose who know no Hebrew or wouldlike to start somewhere.
