Dr. Elitzur Bar-Asher Siegal

Elitzur  Bar-Asher Siegal
+972-2-588-1978

Senior lecturer in the department of Hebrew Language and the School of Linguistics. He is a fellow at the Language Logic Cognitive Center. Previously (2005-2010) he was the lector in Semitics at Yale University, and Lecturer in Semitics at Harvard University (Spring 2012). Elitzur is interested in different aspects of linguistics, including historical and comparative linguistics, syntax and semantics. In addition, he works in the fields of the Philosophy of Language and the History of Linguistics, with a special interest in the philosophical foundations of Ferdinand de Saussure's theories. 

His dissertation, "A Theory of Argument Realization and its Application to Features of the Semitic Languages," deals with questions of predications and grammatical relations cross-linguistically and among Semitic languages in particular (primarily Hebrew and Aramaic, but also Akkadian, Arabic and Ethiopic). He has published several articles in these fields, as well as in those of Jewish Studies and Hebrew Bible.
