Regius Professor of Hebrew
Chairman of the Faculty Board
Geoffrey Khan received his Ph.D. from the School of Oriental and African Studies, London (1984) for a thesis entitled Extraposition and Pronominal Agreement in Semitic Languages. From 1983 until 1993 he was employed as a researcher on the Cairo Genizah manuscripts in the Taylor-Schechter Genizah Research Unit at Cambridge University Library. In 1993 he was appointed to a teaching post at the University of Cambridge’s Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies. He has held the position of Professor of Semitic Philology in Cambridge since 2002. His research in the field of Hebrew has concentrated on linguistic studies of the pre-Modern phases the language. His Ph.D. thesis (published as Studies in Semitic Syntax 1988) contained an analysis of the syntax of Biblical, Qumranic and Rabbinic Hebrew. Much of his later research has related to the reading traditions of Biblical Hebrew and the medieval traditions of Hebrew grammatical thought and Biblical exegesis, with particular attention to Karaite sources (e.g. Karaite Bible Manuscripts from the Cairo Genizah 1990, The Early Karaite Tradition of Hebrew Grammatical Thought 2000, Early Karaite Grammatical Texts 2000, Exegesis and Grammar in Medieval Karaite Texts (ed.) 2001, The Karaite Tradition of Hebrew Grammatical Thought in its Classical Form (2003). His current research projects in the field of Hebrew include two volumes relating to Karaite texts, an edition of texts on the Tiberian reading tradition of Hebrew (various versions of Hidāyat al-Qāri) and a linguistic analysis of Karaite Hebrew Bible manuscripts in Arabic transcription (Karaite Bible Manuscripts in Arabic Transcription). He has been commissioned by Oxford University Press to write a grammar of Biblical Hebrew based on the Gesenius-Kautzsch Hebrew Grammar. Apart from these specialist studies, he has a general interest in the Hebrew language of all periods. He is currently working as the editor-in-chief of the Encyclopedia of Hebrew Language and Linguistics (5 volumes, Brill, in progress), which will include approximately 1,000 articles on all periods and aspects of the Hebrew language.
He also has research interests in Aramaic and Arabic. His Aramaic research concentrates on the Neo-Aramaic dialects, especially the North-Eastern Neo-Aramaic Dialects. His publications include grammars of the dialects of villages of Qaraqosh and Barwar and of the Jewish dialects of Arbel, Sulemaniyya, Ḥalabja, Urmi and Sanandaj. He is currently working on a grammar of the Assyrian Christian dialect of Urmi. Since 2004 he has directed a research team who have created the North-Eastern Neo-Aramaic Database (nena.ames.cam.ac.uk), funded by the AHRC (2004-2009), the Newton Trust and the Golden Web Foundation. His Arabic research concentrates on early Arabic documents. He has published collections of Arabic papyri and Arabic Genizah documents. He is currently working on the following projects in this field: a corpus of Arabic documents from Nubia datable to the Fatimid period excavated at Qasr Ibrim by the Egypt Exploration Society and an introductory handbook for the study of early Arabic documents from the Umayyad to Ayyubid periods.
He was elected Fellow of the British Academy in 1998 and Honorary Fellow of the Academy of the Hebrew Language in 2011. He was awarded the Lidzbarski Gold Medal for Semitic philology by the Deutsche Morgenländische Gesellschaft in 2004.
Geoffrey Khan has supervised Ph.D. students in the fields of Hebrew linguistics, Aramaic linguistics, Karaite studies, Judaeo-Arabic texts, and medieval Arabic Bible translations.
