Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon

Development of an electronic Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic lexicon, based on a print dictionary published in 1907. The project would update entries, incorporating the past century's textual discovery and scholarship.

The project we propose under this grant involves the updating, expanding and making accessible of one of the primary English language resources for the study of the Hebrew Bible and its world. This project, the electronic Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon, is based on the most widely-used and reliable dictionary for the study of Biblical Hebrew, the Hebrew and English Lexicon of the Old Testament of Francis Brown, S.R. Driver, and C.A. Briggs, which is now over one hundred years old. A century of discoveries and new analyses is missing from this essential reference, and yet nothing of comparable utility or reliability has appeared to replace it or fill in these gaps. Our project to update this dictionary and make it accessible as a freely-available online resource, with a print-on-demand option that is in wide use here at UT, is ready to move ahead, and with support from NEH, can become a reality in just a few years.
