Semitist Friedrich Schulthess (d. 1922) here presents a study of forty-nine homonyms in Syriac. He classifies them in the introduction around eight themes: 1. Regular consonantal shifts, 2. Consonantal changes, 3. Inner-Syriac confusions, 4. Metathesis, 5. Secondary stems, 6. Onomatopoetic words, 7. Attraction of roots due to similar meanings, and 8. Foreign words treated as part of the native lexicon. For each of the forty-nine homonyms, which are treated in alphabetical order, Schulthess discusses occurrences of the word as well as its treatment in previous lexicographical works. The work is a thoroughly comparative Semitic investigation. Language indices (Akkadian, biblical and post-biblical Hebrew, Syriac, Aramaic, Arabic, Arabic dialects, Ge‘ez, Amharic, Tigre, Neo-Aramaic, Persian, Turkish, Kurdish, Armenian, and Greek) conclude the study. Readers interested in comparative Semitics and lexicography will welcome the reappearance of this volume.

Turning his keen linguistic eye toward various influences on the Syriac language, Lagarde he addresses the various Persian, Armenian, and Indic words that occur in Syriac literature. Arranged alphabetically according to the Syriac spelling of the words, Lagarde ably addresses 222 loan words with frequently detailed entries tracing roots of the words back through their linguistic pedigree.
