Yes, it’s out this week from Sheffield: The Concise Dictionary of Classical Hebrew. Even though volumes 7 and 8 of the unabridged Dictionary of Classical Hebrew are yet to be released, the abridged version can now be ordered. This is the most exciting news in Semitic lexicography for some time -the first Classical Hebrew-English dictionary built up from original research.
And unlike the case for most dead languages, The Concise Dictionary of Classical Hebrew just keeps finding new words!
“The CDCH thus contains not only the c. 8400 Hebrew words found in the standard dictionaries, but also a further 3340+ words (540 from the Dead Sea Scrolls, 680 from other ancient Hebrew literature, and 2120+ proposed words for the Hebrew Bible not previously recognized by dictionaries). All the words in the full Dictionary of Classical Hebrew are to be found in the CDCH.”
