Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The roots of the modern mathematical Hebrew lexicon are found in the Haskalah movement at the end of the 19th century. The next important stages are found in the context of the efforts of Eliezer Ben Yehuda and the institutions he developed for fostering modern Hebrew in general in Palestine. Of particular importance was the contribution of Avraham Baruch Rosenstein in Tel Aviv.
