Abstract

The period of Hebrew-English lexicography in the British Isles from John Parkhurst (1762) to Benjamin Davies (1872) was the most prolific in the history of Hebrew-English lexicography, yet its study has been neglected. This thesis examines these lexicons, providing a biography of each lexicographer, their aims, methods, and sources. Studies of one word and one set of lexemes are provided for each lexicographer to facilitate comparison between them. This thesis contributes to the history of Hebrew lexicography and to the understanding of lexicons as cultural artefacts.
