Subtitle: A Review of Elisha Qimron's A Grammar of the Hebrew of the Dead Sea Scrolls

The new grammar of the Hebrew of the Dead Sea Scrolls by Elisha Qimron presents a synthesis of this scholar’s numerous illuminating insights. Unfortunately, too many errors (e.g., inaccurate references, misreadings of Hebrew words, and imprecise language) distract from and diminish the analysis. In addition, certain linguistic features (e.g., dialect and register, misspellings due to graphic confusion) seem to be deemphasized or neglected in the study. The result is that scholars should use this resource with caution.
