You should start with a book and two articles by Gary Rendsburg.  [1]
Linguistic Evidence for the Northern Origin of Selected Psalms (Atlanta:
Scholars Press, 1990); [2] "Notes On Israelian Hebrew (I)" in MICHAEL:
Historical, Epigraphical and Biblical Studies in Honor of Prof. Michael
Heltzer (Tel Aviv: Archaeological Center Publications, 1999); [3] "Notes on
Israelian Hebrew (II)," JNSL 26:1, 33-45.
