Example text

Because the available Hebrew version of the Frieden memoir contains so many composition and transcription problems, in the course of translating the document I have made many small corrections and minor editorial changes in grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. I have added or removed the conjunction “and” as necessary for smooth transitions, for example, and I have generally put the text into the past tense unless there was some good reason not to do so. Although I have retained a few errors of grammar here and there in order to help convey a sense of Frieden’s writing style, in many places I have corrected pronoun usage or replaced ambiguous pronouns with nouns.

Incomplete sentences abound in the text, as do run-on sentences and ones in which pronouns do not agree with their subjects or lack clear antecedents altogether. In this respect, Frieden’s composition style may have been influenced by the linguistic idiosyncrasies of the Talmud with which he was so familiar. 2 1.
