constrained in a specific way (syllable structure, stress patterns). Therefore, loanwords which are incompatible with a language’s phonological system may have to undergo adaptation (see Hyman 1970, Holden 1976, Schwarzwald 1998, Kenstowicz 2007, Cohen 2010a/2010b/2013a and many more).

Miriam Lindgren Hjälm

In Christian Arabic Versions of Daniel, Miriam L. Hjälm provides an insight into the Arabic transmission of the biblical Book of Daniel. This book offers an inventory and a classification of extant manuscripts as well as a detailed account of the translation techniques employed in the early manuscripts. The use of the texts is discussed and the various versions are compared with liturgical Bible material.

Miriam L. Hjälm shows the importance of Arabic as a tool for understanding the development of the religious heritage of Christian communities under Muslim rule. Arabic became an indispensable part of the everyday life of many Near Eastern Christians and was increasingly used next to the established liturgical languages, which remained the standard measure of the biblical text.

probably intended to be humorous, but humor is bound to change even more so than language, and therefore it is barely comprehensible for us. The play can be interpreted as an exaggerated representation on the margin of urban society (Wacks 2002:56–61). The Viennese production is an adaptation of the
