Discover the Lexham Discourse Bundle
With custom digital resources like the Lexham Discourse Bundle is great for those unfamiliar with discourse analysis, but who want to understand how the biblical writers’ use of linguistic devices should influence interpretation. The resources in this bundle include glossaries replete with definitions and explanations. For example, one of the discourse terms is “overspecification.” Overspecification is defined as:
(Overspecification): A description of individuals or ideas that is more specific than required to identify the intended referent. This extra information is often thematically loaded—connected to the theme of the context in some way. The overspecification prompts the reader to conceptualize the referent in a specific way.
Below, as I read through 1 Kings in the Lexham Discourse Hebrew Bible, I see that chapter 2 verse 3 includes the phrase, “YHWH your God.” Thanks to the highlighting shown below, I immediately recognize an overspecification in the text. This means that the author could have simply used the term “YHWH.” Instead the author intentionally specified that YHWH is your God, implying a personalized element on the part of the reader.
