Abstract

The present monograph, henceforth STAI, is the outworking of the author’s doctoral dissertation (p. xi). It sets out with the twin aims (pp. 1–2) of:

Providing a lexicographical analysis of Biblical Hebrew terms relating to the technology of writing in Ancient Israel, specifically, the period “after the alphabetic writing system had fully taken root”, i.e. Iron Age II (p. 1);

Establishing the primary source of Ancient Israel’s writing practices, whether Egypt to the southwest, or Assyria to the east.
