Chapter Summary

Joseph Seniri is strongly imbued with the grammatical tradition of Jonah ibn Janah. The exegesis of Seniri is innovative in its concern for the syntax and a literary sensibility that most manifest in poetic passages of the Bible. This commenter is from a school that had built exegetical analysis of syntactic phenomena in his teaching, probably because he is also addicted to writing liturgical poems. The analysis of some features of metalinguistic commentary of Joseph Seniri having identified some of his sources, a systematic review of all elements of the language and terminology exégétick this corpus was undertaken. The result of this work is in the form of a lexicon that assesses, through a diachronic study, the influence of earlier writers on writing exegesis. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: diachronic study; exegetical analysis; grammatical tradition; Jonah ibn Janah; Joseph Seniri; metalinguistic commentary
