Abstract: The present study comprises a classification and analysis of the syntax of the non-verbal clause in Qumran Hebrew, i.e. the linguistic variety (or varieties) found in the so-called Dead Sea Scrolls. The corpus consists of the non-biblical texts written in Hebrew; biblical texts and texts written in Aramaic are excluded. Chapter 1, ‘Introduction’ discusses methodological problems (approach, description) and provides an overview of non-verbal clause patters in variety of Semitic languages. Chapter 2, ‘A survey of previous research’, summarises the results of earlier research into specifically Biblical, Mishnaic and Qumran Hebrew. Chapter 3, ‘The non-verbal clause in Qumran Hebrew’ is the core of the present work, which offers an analysis of the syntax of the non-verbal clause (including the existential clause) in Qumran Hebrew. Chapter 4 contains the conclusions. A bibliography, a Dutch summary and a Curriculum Vitae are appended.
