The past twenty-five years have seen the appearance of new critical editions of medieval Hebrew grammatical works. It is now time to revise our view of the evolution of these medieval studies. Based on old and new materials, this article provides a panoramic picture of different points of view on the vowels as represented in a number of medieval Hebrew linguistic writings. The names used by medieval Hebrew linguists for the vowels – such as nequdot, melakim, tenuʿot, etc. – reflect different approaches to the understanding of the vowels and their functional description. The diverse opinions on the number and classification of the vowels are also presented and discussed, underscoring the most salient contributions of medieval Hebrew grammarians to this field.
