Verb Form Semantics in Qumran Hebrew Texts

On FacebookKen Penner pointed out that his unrevised dissertation is available in PDF format for $10 on Lulu.

In this dissertation Penner clarifies the significance of verb form selection in the Qumran sectarian texts by determining the extent to which the semantic value of the Hebrew finite verb is temporal, aspectual, or modal in the Serakhim (1QS, 1QSa, 1QSb, CD, 1QM), Pesharim, Hodayot (1QHa), MMT, and Temple Scroll, using an empirical method of statistical correlation between form and meaning.
