Then comes the section on nouns, which divides them according to noun pattern and lists several examples for each. Also included are a list of feminine nouns without the feminine marker (-ta), and a list of plural forms. Other tables or lists give nouns in all their possible forms. Following these is the section on pronouns, which covers all the forms, with examples. The greater part of the book deals with the verb forms, all laid out systematically and with examples. All words throughout the book are fully vocalized (East Syriac script). This handbook for grammatical forms in Syriac, besides providing students and scholars with a quick reference, also offers a simple way to learn Syriac grammatical terminology.

    The Life of Severus by Zachariah of Mytilene

    ISBN: 978-1-59333-841-1
    This biography of Severus, the patriarch of Antioch from 512-518 CE, attributed to his schoolmate Zachariah of Mytilene, gives unique information about life in Mediterranean region in the second half of the 5th century. These two young men from wealthy families became involved with a Christian movement, the "philoponoi," "those devoted to work" who combined asceticism with theological study. The work, originally in Greek, survives only in Syriac, which this volume presents alongside the first English translation of it. It is an important source for studies on Ancient Biography, Late Antiquity, and Early Christianity.

    The Correspondence of Severus and Sergius

    Translation and Introduction by Iain Torrance
    ISBN: 978-1-59333-971-5
    Severus of Antioch was the Patriarch of Antioch and a moderate Miaphysite. Sergius the Grammarian is a lesser-known figure, but the content of his letters demonstrates that he was a more extreme Miaphysite. The early 6th century correspondence between the two consists of a set of three letters apiece and an apology by Sergius. Made available in Syriac along with Torrance’s translation, these letters are an important part of the working out of concerns associated with the Council of Chalecedon.
