Historische semitische Sprachwissenschaft

Author: Burkhart Kienast
Publisher: Otto Harrassowitz Verlag
ISBN: 3447043598
Release Date: 2001
Genre: Foreign Language Study

Am Nordrand der Arabischen Halbinsel treten in vorchristlicher Zeit in einem Zeitabstand von jeweils rund 700 Jahren neue semitische Volkerschaften mit eigener Sprache auf: die Akkader kurz nach 3000 v. Chr., die Kanaanaer ab ca. 2100 v. Chr., die Aramaer ab ca. 1400 v. Chr. und die Araber ab ca. 700 v. Chr. Auaerhalb dieser Abfolge steht das Sudarabisch-Athiopische, das aus sprachgeschichtlichen Grunden in die Mitte des 3. Jtd. v. Chr. zuruckreichen muss, auch wenn es erst ab ca. 1000 v. Chr. bezeugt ist. Aus diesen Tatsachen leitet Burkhart Kienast die Notwendigkeit einer historischen Betrachtung der semitischen Sprachen ab und folgt konsequent diesem Ansatz. Daraus resultieren neue Erkenntnisse auf fast allen Gebieten der Grammatik, etwa bei den aus dem Akkadischen gewonnenen Gesetzen der Nominalbildung, die grundsatzlich auch fur alle anderen semitischen Sprachen gelten, oder bei der Deutung der verbalen Tempora aus einem Nominalsatz, woraus sich der Zwang zur mehrfachen Umgestaltung des Verbalsystems ergibt. Verschiedene Punkte deuten darauf hin, dass das Semitisch im IV. Jahrtausend einen tiefgreifenden Wandel von einer Ergativsprache zu einer Sprache mit aktiver Verbalauffassung durchgemacht hat. Das Altsemitische (Akkadische) hat die typische Semitische Sprachstruktur noch nicht gefunden; sie konnte erst nach einigen Korrekturen (z.B. bei dem Status des Nomens und im Verbalsys-tem) ihre endgultige Auspragung erfahren.

The Portuguese Jews of Jamaica

Author: Mordehay Arbell
Publisher: University of the West Indies Press
ISBN: 9768125691
Release Date: 2000
Genre: History

This is the first comprehensive account of the Jewish population of Jamaica and its role in the economic and cultural life of the country. Beginning in the sixteenth century with the first Jewish settlers who arrived with the Portuguese, Arbell chronicles the Jews' fight for civil rights and freedoms and the ways in which their wide network of family connections enabled them to play a key role in international commerce. The work covers religious, cultural and economic aspects of Jewish settlement in Jamaica. The facts presented in each chapter have been authenticated by research in archives and libraries in the US, England, Jamaica and Israel. Citations from documents unearthed enhance the narrative and provide period authenticity, making the book lively reading. Over twenty illustrations provide a picture of the Caribbean in the periods being reviewed.
