Abstract

The article presents and classifies the nominal clause patterns attested in the Hebrew legal documents and letters from the Judean desert dating to the first and second revolts and examines their connections to other phases of the Hebrew language. Though scarce in number, these nominal clauses still disclose the following basic properties: (1) their patterns are bipartite only, basically consisting of subject and predicate without additional personal pronoun, and (2) the majority display subject-predicate word order. An examination of these patterns by syntactic conditioning and context, and their comparison to biblical, Qumranic, and tannaitic nominal clause patterns, shows that they bear the greatest resemblance to tannaitic Hebrew.
