Chapter Summary

This article examines cases in which the Biblical Hebrew particles, exhibit an independent syntactic status by expressing only negation. This type of negation is not accompanied by any supplementary existential meaning, and it conveys the negation as the main focus of a clause. An independent syntactic status of the negative particles is mostly revealed in one-member and elliptical clauses. The elliptical or one-member clauses that contain only a negative particle should be considered predicates in a functional sense. This study considers the parenthetical inclusion of marginal information in sentences. Parenthetical clauses are considered along with parenthetical words and phrases. This article examines developments in research on the linguistic and grammatical analysis of the language and literature of the New Testament.

Keywords:Biblical; hebrew; parenthetical; philology
