Abstract:

Note: This is the 2008 printing of a previously announced book.

Hayyuwj is a 10th century Hebrew scholar and linguist who was born in Fez,
North Africa c945. He migrated to Cordova, Spain c960,  where he studied,
taught and wrote on Hebrew linguistics and  biblical matters. He died in
around the year 1000. He is a pivotal figure in the history of Hebrew
linguistics, in that he abandoned  the traditional  linguistics methods and
adopted and adapted the more sophisticated linguistic paradigm developed by
the 8th century Arab grammarians of the School of Basrah.  He was the first
Hebrew linguist to apply the newly realized formal linguistic methods to
the analysis of Biblical Hebrew text. He wrote two detailed treatises on
the weak and doubled verbs of Biblical Hebrew: kit~b §al-§af¨~l ðaw~t
£uruwf §al-liyn, and kit~b §al-§af¨~l ðaw~t §al-mi?layn, and a treatise on
selected biblical topics: kit~b §al-nutaf.  

He also wrote this gem of a  treatise on tanqiyt¨, the textual pointing
system of the biblical text that was developed by the Masoretes to indicate
vowels, accents, and prosodic features in the otherwise purely consonantal
system biblical text and gave it a clear statement and a coherent basis.
This is a singular treatise and one of a kind, written in Arabic about
Hebrew vowels, called £arak~t 'motions', using the Semitic paradigm of
analysis. He wrote clearly and elegantly on an obscure, intractable and
neglected topic that has engaged the Biblical scholars ever since.
