Would either Robert or Peter be willing to explain what "את as a differential object marker" means, as opposed to the traditional understanding?
Thanks, and regards,
Edit: I just skimmed Peter's, "Object Marking in Biblical Hebrew Poetry," and for instance, "In
DOM languages, object marking is conditioned by a complex set of semantic and pragmatic
factors, but the use of an object marker can typically be correlated to definiteness and/or
animacy, which are represented as scalars," pretty much jives with the traditional definite direct object approach, and scales of definiteness.
