This book examines Northwest Semitic syntax, which has been explored at great length on word, phrasal, and clausal levels. From the Tenth to the Fifth Centuries BC, and including writings from the Phoenician, Moabite, and Hebrew languages, the inscriptional material examined in this work is analyzed based on a text level approach, and how clauses and sentences work together to form larger syntactic units are demonstrated.
