Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to establish, describe and present a term list; based upon word level operations of Avot Yeshurun, as used within the framework of a given literary context (metonymy) and adapted by the poet to a given language environment (poems in New Hebrew).

Aided by terminological methods of description, a classification of the poet's working terminology is conducted, based upon linguistic and, thematic categories, composed in the light of concept-oriented literary criticism in Israel, the issue of transnationality and the meta-time approach typical of holocaust literature.

Considering established patterns and normative requirements for word formation in NH (sections 2.4 - 2.7) and presenting compounds according to the international standards ISO 10241:1992(E) and ISO/TC 37, terms in the resulting term list help bring into focus the poet's operations in the micro perspective and elucidate the act of compounding in which lexical representations of underlying concepts are linked together or transposed, to form Avot Yeshurun's working terminology. Examples for the interaction and systematic correspondence between literary themes and linguistic categories in Yeshurun's compounding serve to elucidate the usability of the suggested contextualising and presentation method and to teach us more about the contribution of Avot Yeshurun to Israeli Hebrew.
