Contemporary Examinations of Classical Languages (Hebrew, Aramaic, Syriac, and Greek)

Valency, Lexicography, Grammar, and Manuscripts
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0656-7
Ancient language study is becoming an increasingly sophisticated and complex discipline, as scholars not only consider methods being used by specialists of other languages, but also absorb developments in other disciplines to facilitate their own research investigations. This interdisciplinary approach is reflected in the scope of research papers offered here, invited and peer-reviewed by the ISLP.

Studies in the Historical Syntax of Aramaic

ISBN: 978-1-59333-645-5
Historical syntax has long been neglected in the study of the Semitic languages, although it holds great value for the subgrouping of this diverse language family. Focusing on the development of adverbial subordination, nominal modifiers and direct speech marking, as well as reviewing changes through language contact and drift, this book is the first step in the syntactic reconstruction of the Aramaic dialect group, the longest-attested branch of the Semitic language family.
