Animal names and categorisation in the Hebrew Bible: a textual and cognitive approach
Animal names are the starting point of this thesis. How many words for animals are there in the Hebrew Bible? What words are used most often, and why? Do we know what all of them mean, and how can we find better ways of translating the ones that have proved recalcitrant? What patterns emerge when all the names are examined together? How did the ancient Hebrews classify or categorise animals? What were the criteria they used to sort them into groups in one way rather than another? What, if anything, can the names and categories they used tell us about how they viewed animals? These are the questions that prompted this study.
