2014 (English)In: Proceedings of the Oslo–Austin Workshop in Semitic Linguistics, Oslo, May 23 and 24, 2013 / [ed] Lutz Edzard and John Huehnergard, Wiesbaden: Harrassowitz Verlag, 2014, 73-94 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The interplay between a perfective storyline wayyiqtol and a perfective qatal in biblical Hebrew narrative prose is compared with Talmy Givón’s notions of ‘vivid perfective’ and ‘remote perfective’. It is suggested that a digression to a qatal clause (more precisely we-x-qatal) codes off-line information in relation to the storyline. This type of narration technique has its roots in an oral society with recitation before a listening audience. It has many affinities with spontaneous oral discourse.
