Cognate accusatives — Hebraic and Semitic phrases in the Book of Mormon (C19, B1)


  • A cognate accusative is a grammatic device in which a verb is followed by a noun that is derived from same origin (i.e. ‘dreamed a dream’).  This device is used frequently in Hebraic and Semitic literature, and is also found numerous times in the Book of Mormon!  This device is rarely used in the English language.
