The study relates the syntactic phenomena of word order displacement and pleonastic pronouns with finite verbs to emphatic constructions in Biblical Hebrew. After a compilation of the word order patterns in a database of all (non-waw consecutive) main clauses in Gen 12-25, Dt 1-11, 29-31, there is a review of the older studies of Albrecht, Brockelmann, of modern studies in linguistics, and then newer studies in Biblical Hebrew.
