This book presents a first inventory of Medieval Jewish linguistic thinking, covering the period from Sa'adya Gaon to Profiat Duran. The author claims that the Hebrew grammatical tradition itself contains but vague reminiscences of actual linguistic thinking. However, contemporary philosophical treatises, exegetical works, and scientific encyclopedias of Rabbanite and Karaite provenance provide these reminiscences with a general theoretical background.
