This paper discusses some of the issues that will be analysed within the framework of the CALAP project; such as syndesis and asyndesis, object constructions, renderings of the Hebrew construct state, nominal clause patterns and others. The following questions are addressed: How can a computer-based analysis add to our knowledge of the Syriac language based on ‘traditional’ grammars like that of Nöldeke? What paramaters have to be taken into account in an analysis of, for example, object constructions, and which of these paramaters can be isolated and analysed with the help of the computer? Can we make a sharp distinction between an ‘intuitive’ and a ‘systematic’ approach of the data, or will our computer-based analysis still be dependent on ‘intuitive’ decisions about what and how we should investigate?
