Language is one of the most fascinating and wonderful aspects of human beings. Linguistics, which includes the study of language generally and here specifically the Hebrew language, take us on a fascinating journey towards understanding and discovering the evolution of the language, its history, and its role in our lives. Hebrew is a living and vibrant language with deep roots and a unique history. Language is deeply connected to the culture in which it is spoken. The study of any language sheds light on the culture and society of its speakers.
In the Department, Hebrew is studied from a variety of perspectives: the study of expressions (pragmatics and discourse analysis), semantics, grammar, the study of the structure of words, phonetics, and more. The Department uniquely focuses on the study of spoken Hebrew, other Semitic languages, and other Jewish languages, and on the place of Hebrew within the Semitic language family. The Department also studies the historical stages of Hebrew, using a multidisciplinary approach in courses which study Hebrew as a basic communication tool which interfaces with other fields such as language and communication, language and sociology, language and cognitive science, language and law.
