Abstract

Synonymous variant readings which cannot be attributed to scribal error are frequently found in parallel sugiot in the Talmud Yerushalmi. Such variants, which are generally restricted to individual words or phrases (unlike their Babylonian counterparts), are found in all the literary and chronological strata in the Yerushalmi (Amoraic and anonymous dicta, technical terminology, baraitot, aggada, etc.). In addition, interchanges of tradents' names (which cannot be explained as corruptions) are attested, as are a few (problematic) variants, which apparently reflect different halakhic traditions. In all probability, such variants, which are attested in other MSS of the Yerushalmi as well, stem from the free, oral recitation of the Yerushalmi in a relatively early period. Two appendices concerning various types of problematic variants conclude the article.
