Designed for students and specialists, The Ancient Languages of Syria-Palestine and Arabia examines the writing system(s), phonology, morphology, syntax and lexicon of the following languages: Ugaritic, Hebrew, Phoenician and Punic, the Canaanite dialects, Aramaic, South and North Arabia. Appendixes also deal with Afro-Asiatic, the Semitic and Proto-Semitic languages, and give the full tables of contents from The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the World's Ancient Languages, and from other volumes in the paperback series. International scholars and specialists in the field of linguistics guide students and educators through the ancient languages in an accessible way.
This book, derived from the acclaimed Cambridge Encyclopedia of the Worlds Ancient Languages, describes the ancient languages of Syria-Palestine and Arabia, for the convenience of students and specialists working in that area. Each chapter of the work focuses on an individual language or, in some instances, a set of closely related varieties of a language. Providing a full descriptive presentation, each of these chapters examines the writing system(s), phonology, morphology, syntax and lexicon of that language, and places the language within its proper linguistic and historical context. The volume brings together an international array of scholars, each a leading specialist in ancient language study. While designed primarily for scholars and students of linguistics, this work will prove invaluable to all whose studies take them into the realm of ancient language.
