In this episode of the Biblical Languages Podcast, Kevin Grasso interviews Keren Dubnov on the semantics of locative verbs in biblical Hebrew.

Keren Dubnov has a PhD in Linguistics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She is a teacher in Hebrew Linguistics at the David Yellin Academic College of Education in Jerusalem. She worked as a scientific secretary at the Academy of the Hebrew Language for many years. Her main specialty is pre-modern and modern Hebrew grammar, including its biblical sources.

This episode is also a tribute to Edit Doron and her work. From her website: "Prof. Edit Doron, a pioneering researcher and leader in the field of theoretical and Semitic Linguistics, passed away, just before she turned 68, having been ill with cancer for several years."

Here's a snapshot of what you can expect in this conversation:

  • What are locative verbs and what is locative alternation in biblical Hebrew
  • The two classes of locative verbs and how arguments are lexicalized in them
  • The difference between a verb-framed language and a satellite-framed language
  • How the semantics of prepositions works within differently framed languages 
  • Examples of how locative verbs, locative alternation, and prepositions work in biblical Hebrew
  • And more!
