It is correct that Peter`s assumptions regarding the classical Hebrew verbal
system are more widely accepted than mine. But I do not think that the same
is true regarding his linguistic assumptions. Many linguists would perhaps
use other methods in their studies than does Mari Broman Olsen, whose model
I use (allthough I reject a part of it), but her linguistic principles are
sound. And I would say that the linguistic principles I use are mainstream
among linguists. A professional linguist may disagree in some of my
applications of my principles and model, but I would not expect that the
principles or model would be criticized. (See the longer post I send today).
Moreover, I have not seen that Peter have outlined any linguistic
assumptions at all.
Rolf, is your dissertation now available to
> those of us who are interested?
At present I am discussing the publication of it with an international
publisher. But such things take time, so I will not expect the publication
of it in the near future. Because of the interests of the publisher I cannot
offer anyone a pdf-copy. However, in connection with the disputation a few
paper copies were printed. The price per copy is US $ 45, plus postage US $
20 (It has 516 pages and the weight is close to 1000 grams). If anyone is
interested s/he can order a copy by sending an E-mail to me.
