Overview

One of the earliest Karaite grammatical texts that have come down to us from the Middle Ages, is the Diqduq, by ’Abū Ya‘qūb Yūsuf ibn Nūhū, of Jerusalem. It is a grammatical commentary on the Hebrew Bible.
This volume presents a critical edition of a large section of that Hebrew grammatical text, together with an annotated English translation and a detailed analysis of its contents. The analysis concerns the tradition of Hebrew grammatical thought that was developed in the Middle Ages by grammarians belonging to the Karaite movement of Judaism.
The work is an important contribution to the study of the history of Hebrew grammar and to the study of medieval Jewish thought in general. It brings to light, for the first time, one of the major Hebrew grammatical texts from the tenth century, which predates most of the works of the Spanish school of Hebrew grammar.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In the first stage of a project at Cambridge University to publish a series of Karaite grammatical texts, Khan presents an edition, facing translation, and analysis of a major section of the , one of the most important records of the early Karaite grammatical tradition, which was current among the Karaite grammarians before the 11th century. The medieval Karaites were a powerful intellectual force that played a central role in the development of many aspects of Jewish thought; they were initially centered in Iran and Iraq, but reached their pinnacle in Jerusalem during the 10th and 11th centuries.
