The Syntactic Pattern: Qtol → Wəyiqtol and the Expression of Indirect Command in Biblical Hebrew
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Languages, Department of Linguistics and Philology.
2017 (English)In: Advances in Biblical Hebrew Linguistics: Data, Methods, and Analyses / [ed] Adina Moshavi,Tania Notarius, Winona Lake: Eisenbrauns, 2017, p. 271-295Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This article identifies and the wəyiqtol (jussive) clause of the indirect command construction (qtol → wəyiqtol) as a distinct type of indirect speech ‘embedded’ within direct speech in Biblical Hebrew prose, in addition to the types of indirect speech identified by C. L. Miller (2003). Unlike the other types of indirect speech, which are characterized by formal (particle) subordination, the indirect command construction is syntactically coded by parataxis. The shift from direct to indirect speech is signalled solely by a shift in deixis (2nd3rd person).
