Hebrew

Hebrew Interpreting & Translation Services

Aplomb Translations provides Hebrew translation and interpreting services.

Hebrew is a Semitic language of the Northern Central (also called Northwestern) group; it is closely related to Phoenician and Moabite, with which it is often placed by scholars in a Canaanite subgroup. Spoken in ancient times in Palestine, Hebrew was supplanted by the western dialect of Aramaic beginning about the 3rd century BCE; the language continued to be used as a liturgical and literary language, however. It was revived as a spoken language in the 19th and 20th centuries and is the official language of Israel.

The history of the Hebrew language is usually divided into four major periods: Biblical, or Classical, Hebrew, until about the 3rd century BCE, in which most of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) is written; Mishnaic, or Rabbinic, Hebrew, the language of the Mishna (a collection of Jewish traditions), written about 200 CE (this form of Hebrew was never used among the people as a spoken language); Medieval Hebrew, from about the 6th to the 13th century CE, when many words were borrowed from Greek, Spanish, Arabic, and other languages; and Modern Hebrew, the language of Israel in modern times. Scholars generally agree that the oldest form of Hebrew is that of some of the poems in the Bible, especially the “Song of Deborah” in chapter 5 of Judges. The sources of borrowed words that first appeared during this period include the other Canaanite languages as well as Akkadian. Hebrew also contains a small number of Sumerian words borrowed from an Akkadian source. The Hebrew of the Bible exhibits little dialectal variety, but literary traces within the text indicate some degree of variation according to geography. In addition to the Bible, a small number of inscriptions in Hebrew of the biblical period are extant; the earliest of these is a short inscription in Phoenician characters dating from the 9th century BCE.
