Language Planning in Israel.
Language Planning Newsletter, v2 n2 p1, 6 May 1976
This article discusses language planning in Israel, and specifically the activities of the Academy of the Hebrew Language. Its development from the original Hebrew Language Council is traced, as well as its membership which is made up of leading Hebrew scholars and writers. The aims of the Academy were basically three: (1) to assemble and carry out research into the Hebrew vocabulary of all periods; (2) to carry out research into the structure of the Hebrew language, in accordance with its original spirit, its requirements and possibilities in all theoretical and practical fields, its vocabulary, grammar, script, spelling, and transliterations. The Academy is required to publish its decisions at least bi-annually and to report on work in progress. A list of the Academy's publications include records of the Academy, a quarterly and monthly journal, a series of monthly illustrated posters, linguistic studies, and dictionaries and terminological lists for experts and teachers. A more detailed discussion of the work done in the areas of word study, word coining and word analysis and related areas is provided. Future priorities of the Academy will include studies of style and syntax. (Author/CLK)
