Chapter Summary

Targum Onqelos (TO) also witnesses some relatively rare demonstrative pronouns, namely דנן and דיכי. These two forms are also found in Targum Jonathan (TJ) to the Prophets. The chapter discusses the most important elements that are found in Aramaic demonstrative pronouns. An understanding of these elements will help to comprehend the forms דנן and דיכי. The chapter also discusses a variety of forms in older phases of the Aramaic language (OA, IA, and BA). It deals with the development of the older forms of the demonstrative pronouns into the forms that are found in Middle Aramaic and provides an overview of the pronouns in TO (and TJ).

Keywords:דיכי דנן Aramaic language; Targum Jonathan (TJ); Targum Onqelos (TO)
