An Outline of Middle Voice in Syriac

Evidences of a Linguistic Category
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0145-6
This study presents a modern linguistic approach to the function of the Syriac et-verbal prefix. Based on a detailed analysis of a number of early Syriac texts, it proposes a unified account of the different values traditionally attributed to the Syriac et- stems. Farina views the data within a typologically comparative framework derived from a cross-linguistic study of middle conjugations.
