Robert D. Holmstedt, Professor of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations at the University of Toronto, focuses on the application of modern linguistic theory to West Semitic languages, particularly ancient Hebrew. He teaches all levels of Biblical Hebrew, Hebrew epigraphy, Phoenician, Ugaritic, Ge’ez (classical Ethiopic), and Comparative Semitics. Holmstedt’s primary research interest is the linguistic study of Northwest Semitic languages. For the last ten years he has focused on ancient Hebrew (everything up to, and sometimes including, Mishnaic Hebrew). He is among a small but growing number of scholars who use generative linguistics in his study of ‘dead’ languages.
