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 Nūḥ, 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.
