Title:Linguistic Reflections on Teaching Hebrew in a Melanesian Context
Abstract:For the past 9 years, SIL PNG has regularly offered courses in biblical Hebrew to Papua New Guinean translators and pastors. The courses were both designed and then refined to fit with the Melanesian cultural and linguistic context in which they were offered. This paper looks at the linguistic factors that affect the teaching of Hebrew in this context, examining points of similarity between PNG languages and biblical Hebrew that can be exploited, and differences that need particular attention in the classroom setting. Recommendations are made for effectively teaching Biblical Hebrew in this linguistic environment.
