Basics of Ancient Ugaritic is a teaching grammar of this ancient language, one spoken at the time of Abraham occuring in ancient texts in cuneiform writing. It begins with the alphabet, and each new lesson builds on the ones before it. It is not, therefore, a synthetic Ugaritic grammarthese types of texts often prove to be overwhelming for students.
Instead, Basics of Ancient Ugaritic can be used for learning the language by individuals on their own or in a classroom setting. Each chapter concludes with a set of exercises allowing students to know whether they are grasping the fundamentals of the language.
In short, Basics of Ancient Ugaritic represents an ideal first text for entering the larger world of Semitic languages.
