Studies in the Vocabulary of the Byelorussian Translations of the Bible

The Belarusian translation from the Hebrew of nine books of the Bible, dating from the late 15th or early 16th century, preserved in manuscript Codex 262...offers much interesting material for the history of Belarusian lexocology, and of East Slavoniclexicology in general. It is the purpose of the present article to provide a few examples of this form in a comparative context... 

... it is to be hoped that the concordance of these texts, which is in the course of preparation by the present writer, as an appendix to the Codex 262 which is to be published in the near future by the Israeli Academy of Sciences, will contribute to the extension of our knowledge of the vocabulary of Belarusian...in the 15-16th centuries.
