Abstract

This paper examines two conceptions of the Hebrew root: Rashi's view according to his commentary on the Bible, and Samuel ben Meir's (Rashbam) view according to his grammatical treatise Sefer Dayqot. Analysis of these literary sources reveals that Rashi adhered to Mĕnaḥem ben Saruq's approach to the 'base' (yesod) of the word, whereas Rashbam's approach differed totally from that of his predecessors, Mĕnaḥem in Spain and Rashi in northern France. Rashbam's approach has close affinities to Ḥayyūj's conception of the tri-radical root in all verbal forms, although based on different assumptions. This conclusion differs from that of Chanoch Gamliel (concerning Rashi) as put forth in Lěšonénu 71 (2009), and that of Ronela Merdler (concerning Rashbam) in her doctoral dissertation (Jerusalem, 2005).
