      Dear All,

      I am glad to announce the publication of a new article in
      the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures
      (http://www.jhsonline.org/index.html).

      Wolfgang OSWALD, “Foreign Marriages and Citizenship in
      Persian Period Judah.”

      Abstract: The prohibition of foreign marriages in the HB
      disqualifies both, wives and their offspring. Similar laws
      from Greek cities suggest that membership in the popular
      assembly was the problem behind, since sons of citizens
      gained citizenship rights when of age. Wealthy people were
      able to enhance their stance by marrying several wives. The
      parallel development suggests that Persian period Israel was
      organized like Greek cities: as an association of persons.
      Such polities need to control membership.

      Dear All, I am glad to announce the publication of a new article in the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures (http://www.jhsonline.org/index.html): Alexander ANDRASON,
      Message 2 of 5 , Jul 17, 2012

        Dear All,


        I am glad to announce the publication of a new article in
        the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures
        (http://www.jhsonline.org/index.html):

        Alexander ANDRASON, “Making It Sound—The Performative
        Qatal and Its Explanation.”

        Abstract: The performative sense of the qatal is compatible
        with the remaining components of the semantic load offered
        by the gram. Employing a chaining procedure built on the
        framework of universal paths and adopting a cognitive
        perspective whereby the verbal meaning is a network of
        conceptually and diachronically related senses, the author
        demonstrates that since the qatal is defined as a
        manifestation of an anterior cline and since it is possible
        to posit a performative stage on this trajectory, the
        anterior cline may also accommodate the performative sense.
