Abstract

Though nagging. these problems do not undermine the values and virtues of the study. What a pleasure to read! Darr writes with clarity, economy. and substance. She knows scholarship and how to teach it. Synagogues. churches. and introductory college courses can benefit from her work. Not least. the graciousness of its demeanor and the generosity of its vision are a welcome gift in an age of verbal assault. Phyllis Trible Union Theological Seminary New York. NY 10027 HEBREW LINGUISTICS: A JOURNAL FOR HEBREW DESCRIPTIVE, COMPUTATION AL, AND APPLIED LINGuIsTIcs. No. 31-32. Maya Fruchtman, ed. Pp ix + 114. Ramat-Gan. Israel: Bar-Han University, 1991. Paper. This double issue contains six articles (and a response to one of them) in Hebrew. with English abstracts and one short correction-note in English regarding the inappropriateness of characterizing Jewish languages as pidgins/creoles. The emphasis is on computational linguistics and discourse analysis. The issue opens with an article by Michal Ephratt, which proposes an algorithm for recognizing linguistic jokes, such as puns, which rely on multiple interpretation of sentences, where the "punch" is attained by the gap between the normal, "least costly" reading and the least expected.
