Ghil’ad Zuckermann (Hebrew: גלעד צוקרמן ‎, pronounced [ɡiˈlad ˈtsukeʁman] ; (1971-06-01 ) 1 June 1971) is an Israeli-born language revivalist and linguist who works in contact linguistics, lexicology and the study of language, culture and identity. Zuckermann is Professor of Linguistics and Chair of Endangered Languages at the University of Adelaide, Australia.

Zuckermann proposes a controversial hybrid theory of the emergence of Israeli Hebrew according to which Hebrew and Yiddish “acted equally” as the “primary contributors” to Modern Hebrew. Scholars including Yiddish linguist Dovid Katz (who refers to Zuckermann as a “fresh-thinking Israeli scholar”), adopt Zuckermann’s term “Israeli” and accept his notion of hybridity. Others, for example author and translator Hillel Halkin, oppose Zuckermann’s model. In an article published on 24 December 2004 in The Jewish Daily Forward, pseudonymous column “Philologos”, Halkin accused Zuckermann of political agenda. Zuckermann’s response was published on 28 December 2004 in The Mendele Review: Yiddish Literature and Language.

As described by Reuters in a 2006 article, “Zuckermann’s lectures are packed, with the cream of Israeli academia invariably looking uncertain on whether to endorse his innovative streak or rise to the defense of the mother tongue.” According to Omri Herzog (Haaretz), Zuckermann “is considered by his Israeli colleagues either a genius or a provocateur”.

Zuckermann’s exploration of phono-semantic matching in Standard Mandarin and Meiji period Japanese concludes that the Chinese writing system is multifunctional: pleremic (“full” of meaning, e.g. logographic), cenemic (“empty” of meaning, e.g. phonographic – like a syllabary) and simultaneously cenemic and pleremic (phono-logographic). He argues that Leonard Bloomfield’s assertion that “a language is the same no matter what system of writing may be used” is inaccurate. “If Chinese had been written using roman letters, thousands of Chinese words would not have been coined, or would have been coined with completely different forms”.
