Paul Haupt was a Semitic scholar and one of the pioneers of Assyrology in America. Known for his editions of the Hebrew Bible and texts and translation of the Gilgamesh, his work is still foundational to any study of Near Eastern language. In this article he argues for the existence of an e-vowel in Ugaritic, a vowel whose existence is difficult to prove in the consonant-free script of Semitic language. This paper will be of interest to students of Semitic language, particularly to those who wish a deeper knowledge of the methods by which modern scholars interpret long dead languages.
