TitleThe Description of Multiple Meaning in Some Biblical Hebrew Lexicographical Projects
AbstractIn this paper I will compare the classical approach to lexicography of Biblical Hebrew, as reflected in standard bilingual dictionaries, with recent developments in the description of the meaning of Hebrew words. These show a separation of paradigmatical and syntagmatical semantics as well as a renewed interest in a thesaurus of Hebrew or at least in the treatment of near-synonyms. This affects the presentation of multiple meaning or polysemy. One may ask whether users such as Bible translators are likely to benefit from these developments. I will discuss how the respective approaches deal with the lexicography of the Hebrew word zera'.
